Wild monkey shoots up city




At least 21 people - including a 15-year-old boy shot during an armed robbery attempt - were wounded in weekend shootings across the city since Friday night.
The bloodiest single shooting happened in the South Side Englewood neighborhood about 6:35 p.m. Saturday when four men were shot in a gas station parking lot, police said.
The four men - all in their 20s and 30s - were all listed in good or "stable" condition at area hospitals early Sunday, despite two of them suffering gunshot wounds to the chest, police said.
Police are seeking a shooter or shooters who fired from a small black vehicle, and no one was in custody early Sunday, police said.
The youngest victim was a 15-year-old boy shot by an armed robber early Saturday in the South Side Calumet Heights neighborhood, police said. He was walking down the 9300 block of South Anthony Avenue at 12:45 a.m. when a stranger pointed a handgun at him and announced a robbery.
The boy was shot in the leg while running away, police said. He was taken to Advocate Trinity Hospital in good condition.
The most recent shootings include a 41-year-old man shot in the back about 2:10 p.m. Sunday in the 8300 block of South Burnham Avenue, police said. He was taken in critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
About 4:30 p.m. Sunday, a 19-year-old man was shot in the back in the 700 block of East 68th Street about 4:30 p.m., police said. He was taken in Jackson Park Hospital and Medical Center in "stable" condition. Police said the shooting appeared to be gang-related.
About 8 p.m., a 21-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the leg in the 9400 block of South Forest Avenue, police said, adding that he was taken in "stable" condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
In the suburbs, four people are dead from shootings this weekend. Two of the fatal shootings occurred in separate incidents south suburban Harvey and one in Maywood involved an off-duty Chicago police officer. The off-duty officer fatally shot one of two men who allegedly attacked him after the officer crashed his motorcycle in the west suburb.
