1 Killed, 2 Wounded In Wednesday Shootings Across Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A man was killed and two others were wounded in shootings Wednesday across the city, according to Chicago Police.

The fatal shooting happened at 10:10 p.m. in the West Chatham neighborhood on the South Side. A 47-year-old man was on the sidewalk in the 8200 block of South Perry when a male with a gun walked up and announced a robbery, police said. The suspect then fired shots, striking the man in the head, before getting into a silver vehicle and leaving the scene. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The Cook County medical examiner's office could not immediately provide information on the fatality.

More than two hours earlier, another man was shot during a robbery in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side. The 21-year-old was sitting inside a vehicle at 7:56 p.m. in the 500 block of North Spaulding when a person approached, showed a handgun and announced a robbery, according to police. During the robbery, the man was shot in the arm and torso. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was listed in fair condition.

The day's first shooting happened just after 9 a.m. during a drive-by attack in the Pilsen neighborhood on the South Side. A 24-year-old man was walking in the 1700 block of South Laflin when a white vehicle drove by and someone inside fired shots, police said. He was shot in the buttocks and thigh, and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition stabilized.
