    Was it am or pm. I read it two different ways from different sources. Where do these people live? What were they doing on Washtenaw? Everybody needs to ask the alderman in the police what's being done about the violence in our area. More police presence. Very concerning

The latest killing happened just after 8 p.m. in South Shore, where officers responding to a call of shots fired found a 24-year-old man in a gangway with gunshot wounds to the head and abdomen in the 6800 block of South Cornell. He was dead at the scene, police said.

A little after 9 p.m., in Little Village, a 22-year-old man heard gunfire in the 3900 block of West Ogden and realized he’d been hit in the back, police said. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.

About 7 p.m., a 19-year-old man was shot in the chest and arm in the 4500 block of South Wood in the Back of the Yards neighborhood and taken to Stroger Hospital, police said.

About 3:45 p.m., a 27-year-old man was shot in the ankle in the Gresham neighborhood’s 1500 block of West 79th Street. He was in good condition at Christ Medical Center, but the documented gang member wasn’t cooperating with investigators, police said.

At 12:36 p.m., a 27-year-old man was riding in a vehicle in University Village when another vehicle pulled up in the 600 block of South Ashland and someone inside opened fire, grazing his forehead. His condition was stabilized at Stroger, police said.

Wednesday’s first shooting happened about 1:30 a.m. in Austin, when a 21-year-old man was shot in the side and grazed across the back in the 5100 block of West Madison. He was treated and released from Stroger without cooperating with detectives, police said.
