ISIS-Like Body Count: 20 People Have Been Shot In Chicago Over The Past 24 Hours

Five people were killed and at least 15 other people were wounded since early Sunday afternoon during separate shootings across the city, authorities said.

In the latest shooting, two men were killed and one was injured around 3:10 a.m. Monday following a fight in a club in the 2200 block of North Ashland Avenue in the Bucktown neighborhood on the North Side, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a Chicago Police Department spokesman.

Elijah Moore, 41, was shot in the chest and Deonte Jackson, 34, suffered multiple gunshot wounds. Both were pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

A 26-year-old man was shot in the wrist and taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where his condition stabilized, authorities said.

Two men were shot dead about 4:30 p.m. Sunday in the 5800 block of West North Avenue in the North Austin neighborhood on the West Side , said Officer Veejay Zala, a police spokesman.

The two were inside a vehicle traveling east on North Avenue when another car pulled up and an occupant fired shots, hitting the men, said Zala.

The vehicle they were in then crashed into a parked car, and the two were declared dead on the scene, according to Zala, who said no arrests have been made. A motive was not clear Sunday night.

According to the Cook County medical examiner’s office, the two men are Andre Chatman, 23, and Carey Hollis, 28. Both live in the 1000 block of North Mayfield Avenue.

Earlier, a 16-year-old boy died after being shot in the head around 12:52 p.m. Sunday in the 5800 block of West Patterson Avenue in the Portage Park neighborhood on the Northwest Side, Alfaro said.

The boy was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition, Alfaro said. The boy, identified by the medical examiner’s office as Giovanni Matos of the 500 block of West Henderson Street, was later pronounced dead at 4:39 p.m.

The Patterson shooting appears to have been a drive-by, police said.
