CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Four people were killed and at least 29 others have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening.

The most recent fatal shooting happened early Monday in West Englewood.

Officers found a man, thought to be in his 50s, unresponsive on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to the head in the 1500 block of West 72nd Street about 12:45 a.m., according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

The man, who remains unidentified, was dead at the scene, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Another man was shot to death Saturday afternoon on the North Side.

William Lewis, 28, was standing on the street in the 1300 block of West Devon Avenue about 3:20 p.m. when someone walked up, pulled out a weapon and shot him in the back, police said.

Lewis, of the 4700 block of North Hermitage Avenue, was taken to Presence Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he was pronounced dead at 3:58 p.m., authorities said.

Police said the shooting may have been gang-related.

Early Saturday, a 50-year-old woman was seriously injured and her son was killed in a domestic-related shooting in a Chicago Lawn neighborhood apartment on the Southwest Side.

About 1:15 a.m., a 47-year-old man got into an argument with a mother and son in the 6200 block of South Rockwell Street, left the apartment, then returned with a gun and shot both people in the chest, police said.

Adarrius Thompson, 27, was dead at the scene, according to the medical examiner’s office. He lived in the block where the shooting happened, authorities said.

His mother was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition, police said.

The exact relationship between the 47-year-old -- who is not in police custody -- and the two others was not immediately known, police said.

Friday night, a man was killed and three other people were injured in a possible drive-by shooting shortly after 8 p.m. in the Austin neighborhood.

The shooting happened in the 5200 block of West Quincy Street, police said.

Damien Bryant, 32, was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene at 8:13 p.m., according to police and the medical examiner’s office. Bryant lived in the block where the shooting happened, authorities said.

A 30-year-old woman who suffered multiple gunshot wounds in the shooting showed up at Loretto Hospital and was later transferred to Stroger Hospital in “stable” condition, police said.

Another male, whose age was not known, was shot in the right arm and refused medical treatment, police said. He did not cooperate with authorities, police said.

A 41-year-old man took himself to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park with a gunshot wound to his hand, police said. He was listed in “stable” condition.

Additionally, a 37-year-old man was taken from the scene of the shooting to West Suburban with a broken foot, police said. He was listed in good condition.

Police believe the shooting may have been a drive-by attack.

The most recent nonfatal shooting happened a few minutes after midnight Monday in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

Two 16-year-old boys were standing on the sidewalk in the 2400 block of West 63rd Street when a white van drove past and someone inside fired shots, police said. Both teens were shot in the leg and taken in “stable” condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

At least 23 other people have been shot across Chicago since Friday evening.

    For every shooting on Chicago’s streets, there are role models trying to make the neighborhoods safe for kids. Some kids join boxing clubs, and the safety and discipline they find there makes a difference.

    It's been months since the last snowflake fell, but Chicago residents are still hitting potholes that make your teeth chatter. Which is why one Southside resident was puzzled when construction crews began repaving a road that virtually no one uses.
