CHICAGO (CBS) — At least 35 people have been shot — eight of them fatally — across the city since Friday afternoon, according to Chicago Police.
Four people were killed in the weekend’s most recent homicide incident Saturday afternoon in the Fernwood neighborhood on the Far South Side. Officers were called at 12:39 p.m. to the shooting scene at a 1 1/2-story home in the 100 block of West 105th Street, police said. Four people were found dead with gunshot wounds — two males and one female found inside the home and one female found outside. A fifth gunshot victim, a female who was also found outside, was taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. Also in the house was a 2-year-old boy who was unharmed. He was taken to Roseland Community Hospital for observation. Police said the incident may be domestic-related and appeared to be an isolated event. Neighbors said all of those shot are related to each other and lived at that address.
About 10 p.m. Friday, 28-year-old Crispin Coliz got into an argument with two males inside a convenience store in the Belmont Heights neighborhood on the Northwest Side, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. When Coliz got into a vehicle and started driving away, the two other people followed in a light-colored SUV. They pulled alongside him in the 7200 block of West Grace and opened fire, hitting him in the side of the head. Coliz, who lived in the 4800 block of Rotary Road in Cherry Hill, was taken to Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where he was pronounced dead at 10:39 p.m.
