(CBS) -- An 18-year-old woman was fatally shot Monday in an apparent drive-by shooting in Englewood -- one of several victims struck by gunfire across Chicago over a relatively short span of time.

Relatives identified the victim as April McDaniel, an aspiring singer and dancer. She and four others were shot around 5 p.m. in the 5700 block of South Sangamon Avenue. McDaniel, who was shot in the throat, was later pronounced dead at a hospital, authorities said.

Four males also were wounded in that incident: 21-year-old shot in the left leg; a 15-year-old shot in the right leg; an 18-year-old shot in the stomach; and a 20-year-old shot in the left hand and right knee.

In a separate drive-by shooting, a 19-year-old man was wounded in the 5200 block of South Fairfield Avenue around 8:25 p.m., when someone in a red vehicle shot him as it passed by. The victim was taken to Stroger Hospital, but his condition was not immediately available.

About 5:30 p.m., a man was grazed by a bullet in the 1400 block of East 66th Place, and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition.

Both were stable as they were taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, Zala tells WBBM Newsradio.

Just before 3 p.m., a 16-year-old boy was shot in the hand while walking in the 8900 block of South Buffalo Avenue. He was taken in good condition to Trinity Hospital.
