At least 3 others wounded Friday afternoon, Saturday morning

A 24-year-old man was fatally wounded Friday afternoon in a shooting on the South Side in the city's South Shore neighborhood.

About 3:45 p.m., Raymond Tucker was walking on the 1900 block of East 79th Street when a group of males jumped out of a vehicle and shot him, authorities said.

The man was taken in critical condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, said Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford.
