Two men were killed and at least 11 others were wounded from gun violence in Chicago since Friday evening.

The latest fatality happened about 6:28 a.m. Saturday in the Marquette Park neighborhood, where police said a love triangle led to a deadly drive-by shooting in the 6600 block of South Bell Avenue.

Darius McGraw, 22, suffered a gunshot wound to the upper chest when shots were fired from a vehicle, authorities said.

McGraw, of the 6300 block of South Hamilton Avenue, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he later died, according to the Cook County Examiner’s office.

A police source said a feud between the victim and another man over a woman sparked the shooting.

The weekend’s first fatal shooting happened early Saturday in the Little Village neighborhood. Freddie Hernandez, 20, was standing outside in the 2500 block of South Trumbull Avenue at 2:38 a.m. when a van pulled up and someone inside started shooting, police said. Hernandez was shot in the face and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 3:15 a.m.

Ten people were wounded in shootings around the city Saturday.
