About 11:10 p.m. he was driving when he noticed a dark-colored vehicle approach him in the 7400 block of South Yates Boulevard, and began firing shots, Chicago police said.

He was struck in the back and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in good condition, police said.

About thirty minutes prior a 36-year-old man was wounded when he was shot in New City on the South Side.

He was on the sidewalk about 10:35 p.m. in the 600 block of West 48th Street when someone in the back of a grey sedan fired shots, police said.

Three people, including a 17-year-old boy, were wounded in a shooting in Austin on the West Side.

About fifteen minutes prior and on the South Side, two people were shot at a party in Englewood.

They were at a party about 8:40 p.m. in the 6800 block of South Loomis Boulevard when a fight broke out, police said. The 32-year-old man and 16-year-old girl then heard gunshots and felt pain.

The man was struck in the hand, and the girl was hit in the leg, police said. They were both taken to Roseland Hospital in good condition.

Three people were wounded in two different shootings about the same time, one in West Garfield Park on the West Side and the other in Rosemoor on the South Side.

About the same time a 39-year-old man was on the sidewalk in the 500 block of East 103rd Street when someone in a vehicle fired shots, striking him in the groin, police said.

The man took himself to Roseland Hospital where he is in good condition, police said.

A concealed-carry license holder returned fire at someone who shot him in Washington Heights on the South Side.

The 26-year-old man was driving about 2:30 a.m. in the 9400 block of South Loomis Street when a white SUV approached and three people got out and opened fire, according to police.

The man, who has a concealed-carry license, was shot in the leg and returned fire, but it was not immediately clear whether he hit anyone, police said. The suspects fled the area.

He went to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn on his own and was listed in good condition, police said.

Minutes later, a man and a teenage boy were injured in a shooting in South Chicago.

They were standing near a vehicle at 2:22 a.m. in the 7900 block of South Merrill Avenue when someone approached and started shooting, police said.
