Ten people were shot overnight across the city, one of them fatally.

Among the surviving wounded is a retired Chicago police sergeant who was wounded in a home invasion about 11:45 p.m. in his East Side home. He's in serious-to-critical condition, police said.

A 36-year-old man died at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn after he was shot on the South Side. He was wounded in the 2300 block of East 75th Street and taken in critical-to-grave condition to Christ hospital, said Chicago Fire Department spokesman Chief Juan Hernandez. The man suffered a gunshot wound to the leg about 6:59 p.m., said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Ana Pacheco.

The victim was standing inside a convenience store when someone entered and shot him multiple times, then fled, said News Affairs Sgt. Antoinette Ursitti. A description of the shooter was not available.

The Cook County medical examiner's office identified the man as Chad Collins, 36, of the 14800 block of South Maplewood Avenue in Harvey. He was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center at 8:04 p.m.

Collins died from multiple gunshot wounds, with gunshot wounds suffered in an earlier shooting a contributing factor, the Cook County medical examiner's office determined following an autopsy Tuesday. Collins' death was ruled a homicide. 

Someone shot a 20-year-old man in the leg about 3:10 a.m. in the 2100 block of West Cullerton Street in the Heart of Chicago neighborhood. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital and is expected to survive.

The two were taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, police said.

About 10 p.m. a 35-year-old man was shot in the leg in the Gage Park neighborhood. The man went to that location to confront the mother of his child's new boyfriend, who shot him. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.
