The most recent shooting occurred early Friday on the West Side in the Lawndale neighborhood, about 12:50 a.m. when a 23-year-old man, who police said is affiliated with a gang, was shot in the jaw in the 3200 block of West Roosevelt, police said. The 23-year-old was taken in serious condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.

In a separate West Side shooting, a 25-year-old woman was critically injured when she was shot in the abdomen in the 200 block of North Latrobe in the Austin neighborhood about 11:26 p.m. Thursday, police said. The woman was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County for treatment.

About 9:50 p.m. on the South Side, a 22-year-old man was near West 31st and South Lituanica in the Bridgeport neighborhood when a bullet grazed his head, police said. He was taken in good condition to Mercy Hospital.

About the same time, a man was shot on the West Side in the 400 block of North Lavergne, police said. The 23-year-old man is listed in good condition at Mount Sinai Hospital. Police said they have few details about the shooting because the man, who they called a known gang member, was not cooperating with investigators.

Several hours earlier, a man was critically injured when he was shot in the face in the Lawndale neighborhood about 4:45 p.m. in the 2700 block of West 24th, police said. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital for treatment. Police offered few other details about the shooting.

No one was in custody in connection for any of the shootings.
