CHICAGO (CBS) — A 14-year-old boy was among three people killed and 22 others wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday afternoon and Sunday morning.

The most recent deaths were the latest of 383 people fatally shot in the city this year, according to data maintained by the Chicago Sun-Times. In all, more than 2,200 people have been shot since the start of 2017.

Most recently, a 33-year-old man was killed at 5:18 a.m. Sunday in a domestic-related shooting in the Clearing neighborhood on the Southwest Side. A 30-year-old woman was being battered by the man in the 6900 block of West 65th Street when she pulled out a gun and shot him three times, according to Chicago Police. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the incident was believed to be domestic-related. The woman was in custody and charges were pending Sunday morning.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office did not immediately provide information on that fatality.

The 14-year-old boy, identified as Damien Santoyo, was killed in a Pilsen neighborhood drive-by shooting about 2:35 a.m. Sunday on the South Side. He was standing with two other juveniles on a porch in the 1700 block of South Newberry Avenue when people in a passing vehicle yelled gang slogans and fired shots, police and the medical examiner’s office said. Santoyo, who lived in the Ashburn neighborhood on the Southwest Side, was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene at 2:50 a.m.

About 10:40 p.m. Saturday, a 39-year-old man was gunned down in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side. He was driving west in the 300 block of West 57th Street when someone fired shots, striking him multiple times in the torso, police said. The man’s vehicle then struck a fence. Officers eventually found the man in the vehicle and he was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced. His name has not been released.

The weekend’s latest nonfatal shooting happened about 5 a.m. Sunday in the Pilsen neighborhood on the South Side. A 19-year-old was standing on the sidewalk in the 800 block of West 19th Street when someone in a passing red vehicle fired shots in his direction, police said. He suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was taken in serious condition to Stroger Hospital.
