According to the Chicago Police Department, four people were killed by gunfire and another 17 people were wounded in separate shootings between 6 p.m. Friday and 11:59 p.m. Sunday.

Police said four people were inside a home in the 8000 block of South Vincennes Avenue at around 7:30 p.m. Sunday when two men entered and opened fire. A 14-year-old boy was struck in the back and died on scene. A 36-year-old man and 20-year-old man were also fatally shot inside the home, while a 16-year-old was hospitalized in fair condition with a gunshot wound to his leg.

There was no one in custody as of Monday morning as the shooting remains under investigation  by Area Two detectives.

Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office records identified the 14-year-old as Amere Deese and the 20-year-old as Ladeverett West Ringgold.

Four people were shot, one fatally, in a separate mass shooting Sunday in a park in the 7300 block of North Rogers Avenue. Police said the group was standing in that area when two people approached and fired shots. A 19-year-old woman was shot in the chest and later died at a local hospital.

The three other victims — a 20-year-old man, 19-year-old man and 22-year-old woman — were each hospitalized in good condition.
