At least 13 people were shot -- one fatally -- on the South and West sides since Friday afternoon, according to authorities.
One of the men shot, a 24-year-old, died at 11:34 p.m. Loyola University Medical Center in west suburban Maywood, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office, and was identified as LaGregory Porter, of the 5900 block of West Iowa Street. Porter and another man, 23, were shot about 11 p.m. in the 5500 block of West Quincy Street in the South Austin neighborhood after an "altercation" with others, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.
The survivor of that attack was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital and is expected to recover.
Nearby in South Austin – while police were still investigating the scene on Quincy – two people were shot on Leclaire Avenue just north of Madison Street about 12:45 a.m.
A 22-year-old man had been shot in the neck and buttocks and a friend tried to drive him to a hospital. Police responding to the shooting stopped a black car with the two inside at Central Avenue in the alley north of Madison Street. Police found a gun nearby. The front driver-side window of the black car had been shot out.
The 22-year-old was taken to Loyola University Medical Center, police said, and a friend of his with blood on his white T-shirt was taken into custody.
A second person shot on Leclaire, a 19-year-old woman, was treated for a wound to her thigh at West Suburban Medical Center, News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

Someone dropped off a man at John H. Stroger. Jr. Hospital of Cook County with a gunshot graze wound to the face about 3:30 a.m., police said. Police said the 28-year-old wouldn't say where he had been shot, though officers heard gunfire in the area of 21st and Wood streets in the Heart of Chicago neighborhood not long before the man showed up at Stroger.
Police had stopped a maroon-colored SUV with bullet holes, broken glass and a flat tire a few blocks south, on Damen Avenue just south of Roosevelt Road in the Illinois Medical District neighborhood, but police said the two men in the vehicle, stopped by University of Illinois at Chicago police, were also uncooperative.
