A 16-year-old boy was one of three people killed in shootings Sunday on the North, West and South sides of the city.
At least six other people were injured in shootings across the city that continued into this morning.
The most recent of the three fatal shootings happened about 11 p.m. Sunday in the West Side’s Lawndale neighborhood.
Two shooters opened fire on a man and a woman sitting in a vehicle in the 4000 block of West Cullerton Street, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said, citing preliminary information.
The man, who was 35 years old, died at Mount Sinai Hospital after being shot in the back, according to police. The Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed it was notified of the death and later identified the man as Ernest J. Carter of the 4000 block of West 21st Street in Chicago.
The man’s name has not been released pending notification of family.
The 37-year-old woman sitting with the man was also shot in the back, according to police. She was taken to Sinai, where she was listed in serious condition.
Earlier, in the Rogers Park neighborhood, a 22-year-old man was shot in the head at 3:43 p.m. in the 1600 block of West Jonquil Terrace, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Daniel O’Brien. He was identified as Blake Lamb, of the 7600 block of North Bosworth Avenue in Chicago, by the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
First responders found the man unresponsive on the sidewalk, police said. He died on the scene.

There was a 16 y/o also killed. Joseph Brewer, Jr. Where are the protesters?
Since he was probably killed by a black person, that makes it OK.
Chicago & DC. The municipal poster children of how effective gun control laws are at disarming the law-abiding citizens and encouraging the law-breakers to use violence.
Media seems blind to those tiny details though.
