From MyFoxChicago: Eight people were killed and at least 26 more have been wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday night.

The weekend’s latest homicide happened early Sunday in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side, police said. Officers responding at 5:11 a.m. to a call of a person down in the 5200 block of West Ferdinand found the male lying on the ground, suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest, according to Chicago Police. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

About two hours earlier, a 31-year-old man was fatally shot Sunday morning on the Near West Side, police said. The 31-year-old was found on the sidewalk at 3:30 a.m. just south of the entrance to Touhy-Herbert Park in the 2100 block of West Adams Street, police said. The shooting occurred a half block west of Chicago Bulls College Prep. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

At 2:18 a.m., another 31-year-old man was shot to death in a separate Austin neighborhood attack, police said. He was shot in the back in the 5000 block of West Van Buren, police said. The man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. Additional information was not available.

Earlier Sunday, one man was killed and another was wounded in a shooting in the Wrightwood neighborhood on the South Side. The men — ages 19 and 20 — were sitting outside a home at 12:04 a.m. in the 2900 block of West 82nd Street when a male approached and began shooting, according to police and the medical examiner’s office. The 19-year-old was shot in the chest and pronounced dead at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn at 12:45 a.m., authorities said. The 20-year-old was shot in the arm and chest and taken to Christ Medical Center in serious condition.

At least 21 more people have been shot in separate attacks across Chicago since 9 p.m. Friday.
