Five people were killed and at least 16 other people -- including four teenagers and a 72-year-old woman -- were wounded in shootings across the city since Friday night.
The most recent fatal shooting occurred late Sunday in the Lawndale neighborhood, when 35-year-old Ernest J. Carter and a woman were sitting in a car parked in the 4000 block of West Cullerton Street, authorities said.
About 11 p.m., two gunmen approached the pair on foot, opening fire into the car from behind, police said.
Both were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with gunshot wounds to the back. Carter, of the 4000 block of West 21st Street, was struck multiple times and died at Mount Sinai Hospital at 11:45 p.m., the medical examiners office said. The woman, 37, was in serious condition, police said.
Earlier Sunday afternoon a man was found dead from a gunshot wound to the head in the 1600 block of West Jonquil Terrace in the Rogers Park neighborhood, police said. The body of 22-year-old Blake Lamb was found about 3:45 p.m.
Lamb, of the 7600 block of North Bosworth Avenue, had been shot multiple times.
About an hour earlier on the South Side, a teen boy died after he was shot in the back in the South Deering neighborhood about 2:50 p.m., police said.

Oh outrage outrage!!!!! No justice no peace!!!!!
Last weekend it was 12 deaths and 41 shot
They are improving.
Black on Black Crime...where is the outrage?
Are these victims worth less than Trayvon Martin?
That Chicago City Morgue must be one busy place...
who cares? we’re only supposed to care about trayvon
Who cares. It only gets a headline if the shooter is white... If Jesse Jackson and Revrund Al don’t care about the pandemic of dead black kids in Chicago, I’ll be damned if I will.
Damn aren’t these people even trying?
Less than 30% efficiency
Last weekend included July 4 and 5, four days. So they are keeping up with their average.
Gun violence. Not people violence.
Not for nothing, but I’m getting sick of the term “gun violence”. When people get killed in M/V accidents do we call it “Car Violence” or if someone’s clubbed to death, “Bat Violence”? It’s violence, period.
SAVAGES SPAWNED FROM A VIOLENCE PRONE AND TOLERANT POPULATION OF LARGELY NO DISCIPLINE, FATHERLESS FAMILIES use guns to kill 5 and wound 16 since Friday night.
In third world hellholes, they use machetes and the victims are just as dead only more painfully so.
There, that's much more accurate.
This headline is instructive: it mentions 'gun-violence' and buried deep in the story is a sentence that identifies at least one of the shootings as gang-related.
The unapologetic bias in the news business is a genuine tragedy. In my college years, the kids who majored in the news-editorial sequence used to look down their noses at us who were more interested in the commercial side, thinking their motives of 'reporting the truth' were pure as the driven snow.
“Gun violence kills 5, wounds 16 since Friday night”
Yep, its all those crazy guns out running around by themselves causing mayhem.
This is exactly the reason that guns should outlawed in the city of Chicago. This would not happen if guns were illegal.... ....Wait.
yet there is no protest and threats of riots
lots of shot in the back....nice..kind of cowardly don´t ya think..but thats the hood...
Yeah, “gun violence” is terrible... them there guns are just climbing out of safes all over the country, looking for innocent victims...all on their own, clearly.
I’ve hired and worked with a lot of journalist majors over the years, and I agree that it is really hard to find anyone more sanctimonious and more self-righteous than a journalist major.
It’s kind of nice to see that for every time I post a job listing that requires contains considerable writing, I’ll usually get over a thousand applicants from journalist majors that have essentially been flipping burgers since graduating.
Strange how many of those guns are targeting Chicago.............
