Teen, three others hurt in separate South Side shootings

At least four people -- including a 16-year-old boy -- were wounded in separate South Side shootings Monday evening into early Tuesday.

The teen was shot in the hand and leg after he heard gunfire while walking in the 8800 block of South Houston Avenue about 10:55 p.m., police said. He is listed in “stable” condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

The evening’s first shooting happened about 7:18 p.m. when a man was shot in the left arm in the 0 - 100 block of 110th Place. He was taken to Roseland Community Hospital in good condition but police say the known gang member was not cooperating with authorities.

About 11:55 p.m., a 57-year-old woman was shot in the shoulder in the 400 block of West 57th Street, police said. She remains in “stable” condition at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

About an hour later, a 24-year-old man was shot on a sidewalk in the 8400 block of South Paulina Street, police said. Officials said the man is in “critical but stable” condition at Christ Hospital.

No one is in custody for any of the shootings, police said.
