A 17-year-old boy was killed and 10 other people were wounded -- including two people on the Kennedy and Dan Ryan expressways -- in shootings across the city since Friday night.
The teenage boy was fatally shot in the head Saturday afternoon in the South Side Bronzeville neighborhood.
He was shot shortly before 3 p.m. in the 3900 block of South Prairie, police said.
The boy was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 3:44 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. His name was not released Saturday evening pending notification of his family.
Police said the shooting is gang-related, and that the boy was a documented gang member.
The most recent nonfatal shooting occurred early Sunday on the Dan Ryan Expressway on the South Side.
A man, whose age was not immediately known, was in a vehicle travelling southbound on Interstate 90/94 when he was shot near the 79th Street exit, Illinois State Police said.
That person was taken to Christ Medical Center, but further information was not available.
Just two hours earlier, at 1 a.m., a male was shot on the Kennedy Expressway on the West Side.
The male — whose age was not immediately known — was in a red Ford Mustang that was heading northbound on I-90 when he was shot near the Fullerton exit ramp, police said.
