Bullets on Saturday for a bit of Chicago taste :Two men were killed and 1-year-old baby wounded in shootings

Two men were killed and at least nine other people, including a 1-year-old baby and a 14-year-old boy, have been wounded since late Friday morning in shootings on the West and South sides. 


Two men, 32 and 34, were shot to death and another man was wounded about 11:20 p.m. during a birthday party inside a home in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, according to police

The three men were at the party inside a garage of a two-story residence in the 7400 block of South Eggleston Avenue when a male attacker who was initially denied entry to the party came back and fired shots, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a Chicago police spokesman. 


The 32-year-old, identified as Pierre Payne of the 1900 block of East 71st Street, was shot in the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:38 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office and police.

The 34-year-old identified as Andrew Haynes, of the 0 to 100 block of West 13th Street, suffered gunshot wounds to his torso and was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, Alfaro said. He was a documented gang member, police said.

A 45-year-old man was shot in the left hip, and he was taken to Stroger, where his condition was stabilized, Alfaro said.

No one was immediately in custody as a result of the shooting.

In other shootings, three more people were wounded Saturday morning just after 8 a.m. on the South Side, according to authorities.

At 8:20 a.m. in the 6400 block of South Langley Avenue, a 28-year-old woman was shot in the right knee during an altercation with another female, according to Officer Janel Sedevic, a spokeswoman for Chicago police.

She was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where her condition has stabilized, Sedevic said. The other female fled the scene and was not in custody.

In a separate shooting that happened at 8:30 a.m. in the 6100 block of South Bishop Street in the Englewood neighborhood, two men were wounded, Sedevic said.

A 28-year-old man was shot in the left thigh while a 23-year-old man was shot in the right ankle, Sedevic said. Both were taken to Stroger Hospital, where their conditions had stabilized.

About 2:25 a.m., a 21-year-old woman was wounded in a shooting in the South Austin neighborhood on the West Side, Alfaro said.

The woman was standing on the street in the 5500 block of West Congress Parkway when she heard gunshots and realized she was struck in the abdomen, Alfaro said. She managed to get herself to Loretto Hospital, and she was transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital, where her condition stabilized, Alfaro said.

On Friday about 4:45 p.m., a 1-year-old girl was shot while riding in the back seat of a car traveling west in the 5400 block of West LeMoyne Street in the city's North Austin neighborhood, said Officer Kevin Quaid, a Chicago police spokesman.

Someone in a silver-colored vehicle fired shots, and one went through the trunk striking the baby in the neck. Police initially said the baby was struck in the head.

The driver took the baby to West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park, but the baby was later transferred to Stroger Hospital, where her condition remained stabilized early Saturday, said Officer Jose Estrada, a Chicago police spokesman.

About 5:20 p.m., a 14-year-old boy was shot in the city's West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, Quaid said. That shooting happened in the 2300 block of West 66th Street.

According to preliminary reports, the boy suffered a wound to the right foot in a drive-by shooting. He was taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, Quaid said.

About 11:24 a.m., a 22-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound in the 1400 block of West 115th Street in the Morgan Park neighborhood, police said.

The man was wounded in his left foot and was taken to Metro South Medical Center in good condition, police said. Police are investigating whether the man may have shot himself by mistake.

Earlier, at 9:30 a.m. Friday another 22-year-old man was shot in the 1400 block of North Lavergne Avenue, police said.

The man was shot in the buttocks and leg and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition had stabilized, said police. The man, who is a known gang member, was on a porch when someone came out of a gangway and shot him, police said.
No one was in custody as a result of the shootings.
