Three people were wounded in shootings early Sunday and Saturday on the south and west sides.
Most recently, a man took himself to Norwegian-American Hospital about 3 a.m. for treatment of a gunshot wound to the toe which happened when he accidentally shot himself in the 4100 block of West Crystal Street in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood on the West Side, police said.
His injuries were not life threatening.
In an earlier attack about 9 p.m. Saturday in the 5900 block of South Paulina Street in the city's Englewood community on the South Side, someone shot a teen in the leg, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro. The 16-year-old boy was in a house when he heard shots and felt pain, police said; the victim and witnesses were uncooperative.
The teen was taken to Holy Cross Hospital in good condition, Alfaro said.
Earlier, at 12:17 p.m. in the 1100 block of West 63rd Street in Englewood, a 23-year-old man was shot in the chest, said News Affairs Sgt. Antoinette Ursitti.
The man was taken in good condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, she said.
No one was in custody for the 63rd Street attack, according to Ursitti.
