Chicagoans celebrate Father's Day weekend by shooting fifteen people in twelve hours

At least 15 people were shot, one fatally, across the city between mid-day Friday and early Saturday morning, police said.

The most recent incident at about 2:55 a.m. Saturday left four people wounded in Humboldt Park. The four walked into Norwegian American Hospital with gunshot wounds after someone shot them in the 3300 block of West Beach Street, just west of the park and south of North Avenue. Police said the four identified with a gang that rivals one that claims territory where they were shot. A 21-year-old man was shot in the arm, a 20-year-old man was shot in both arms, an 18-year-old man was shot in the back and a 19-year-old woman was shot in the left leg. They were in a westbound car when someone shot at them, police said.

About 11:55 p.m. Friday, a 28-year-old man was killed in a West Side shootout in the 1300 block of South Central Park Avenue in the Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side. Police found shell casings in the street and inside a nearby apartment from which detectives led two young men away from in handcuffs.
