According to Chicago Police Department data, 31 people were shot in 26 separate shooting incidents between 6 p.m. Friday and 11:59 p.m. Sunday. That included the four people killed and three teens who were wounded in a shooting at a CTA station Sunday afternoon.

A 27-year-old man was killed just before 1 a.m. Sunday in the 3700 block of West Division Street. He was outside on the street when he was shot multiple times by an unknown offender. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A 30-year-old man was killed and a 25-year-old man was injured in a shooting just after 8 a.m. in the 3100 block of West Redfield Drive. They were both outside when an unknown person approached and opened fire. The 30-year-old was struck multiple times and pronounced dead at a local hospital. The second victim was hospitalized in critical condition.

A 20-year-old man was fatally shot at around 6 p.m. in the 1900 block of South St. Louis Avenue. He was on a sidewalk when someone inside a vehicle fired shots, striking him multiple times. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Details of the weekend's fourth homicide were not immediately available.

Three teens were hospitalized after a shooting at the 95th Street Red Line station just before 3 p.m. Sunday. Police said a 19-year-old man got into a physical altercation with an unknown person outside and fled inside to the train station’s vestibule area. The unknown person followed and began firing shots, striking the 19-year-old, an 18-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy.

The 19-year-old was struck in the right hand and right leg and was hospitalized in fair condition. The 18-year-old sustained a gunshot wound to the left arm and was hospitalized in good condition, while the 16-year-old was listed in critical condition after being shot in the right shoulder, right arm and lower back.

Interim Police Superintendent Fred Waller said officers responded to the scene and applied a tourniquet to one of the victims. As of Monday afternoon, no one had been arrested in connection with the shooting.

“We’re looking at the video to see if we can identify the shooter,” Waller said.
