A 28-year-old far north suburban man was killed in the West Side's Tri-Taylor neighborhood and two women were injured in separate shootings Saturday night and Sunday morning, police said.
The man was shot about 2:45 a.m. as he stood on a porch in the 2400 block of West Flournoy Street, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said, citing preliminary information.
He was taken in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the chest to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, where he was pronounced dead at 3:25 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
The medical examiner's office identified the man as Gavin Williams, of the 2600 block of Gilead Avenue in Zion.
About 15 minutes earlier and just blocks away, a 30-year-old woman was shot in the ankle while standing in the 2300 block of West Grenshaw Street, police said.
The woman was taken to Stroger, where she was listed in good condition.
Preliminary information suggested no relation between the Flournoy and Grenshaw shootings, News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada said.
About 11:30 p.m., a 47-year-old woman was shot as she stood on a porch in the 1300 block of South Springfield Avenue, Alfaro said.
The shooting happened in the Lawndale neighborhood.
A male shooter approached on foot and fired, striking the woman in the left hand, Alfaro said, citing preliminary information.
The woman was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was listed in good condition.
Police have no suspects in custody as Area Central detectives investigate.
