Four people were killed and at least ten others, including a 14-year-old girl, have been wounded since Tuesday morning in Chicago shootings, police said.

In the first fatal attack, a 34-year-old man was in the 5200 block of South Winchester Avenue in the Back of the Yards neighborhood when he was shot in the chest at 6:15 a.m., according to preliminary information from police. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man was later identified as Alcaraz C. Reyes, of the same block where he was shot, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. He was pronounced dead at 7:08 a.m., according to the medical examiner's office.
Another shooting took place on the same block about 13 hours later, police said.
In that attack, a 32-year-old man was shot in the arm and back about 7 p.m. and taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition had stabilized, police said.
The man was in a fight and the other person took out a gun and fired shots. No one was in custody.


In the second homicide, a 24-year-old man was killed just before 11 a.m. in the first block of North Keeler Avenue in the city's West Garfield Park neighborhood, said Officer Jose Estrada, citing preliminary reports.

The man was on the street when someone on foot came up to him and shot him multiple times, police said. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead, said Officer Jose Estrada, a department spokesman.

A man in his 30s was discovered dead in Back of the Yards early Wednesday, police said. At about 12:25 a.m., officers conducting a well-being check in the 5300 block of South Hermitage Avenue found him unresponsive in an alley with a gunshot wound to the back of the head. He was declared dead on the scene.

In nonfatal shootings:

A 14-year-old girl was shot in the neck about 3:25 p.m. in the Grand Crossing neighborhood, according to police. She was inside a home in the 7100 block of South Ingleside Avenue when she was shot. She was taken to Comer Children's Hospital in "guarded" condition, police said.

The girl was sitting at a table when someone pulled out a gun to show it to her and the gun went off. That person fled after the gun went off, police said, and no weapon was recovered at the scene. The shooting may have been accidental, police said.

About an hour after the shooting, the block was quiet. Two neighbors sat on a porch across the street watching the police as they worked. One of the neighbors said he heard screaming and that someone was shot. He said he saw the girl and that she seemed conscious and calm. Red tape was strung around the front porch of the house and three officers stood at the front of the home.
