A man is dead, and at least four others — including a 14-year-old boy — were wounded Saturday in separate shootings, Chicago police said.

The fatal shooting happened shortly before 4:30 p.m. in the 10200 block of South Yates Boulevard in the South Deering neighborhood.

Police said a 31-year-old man was on the sidewalk when a vehicle pulled up and someone inside fired shots toward him.

He suffered wounds to the chest and back, and was taken in critical condition to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

About 7:45 p.m., a 14-year-old boy and a 39-year-old woman were shot in the 100 block of East 59th Street in the Washington Park neighborhood, police said.

The two were in a vehicle leaving the expressway when an Audio drove up beside them and someone inside started firing shots at them, police said. They then kept driving east until they collided with a Pontiac sedan.

The woman was shot in the abdomen and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in good condition, police said. The boy was shot in the arm and taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in good condition.

Police said the man was walking when a dark-colored van pulled up and someone fired shots, striking him to the right side of the chest. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he was listed in good condition, police said.

Shortly after 3:45 p.m. a 19-year-old man was shot in the first block of East 89th Street in the West Chesterfield neighborhood.

Shortly before 2 p.m., a 29-year-old man was shot in the 1400 block of West 105th Street. He was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in good condition.

No one was in custody, and detectives were investigating.
