One person was killed and five others wounded in shootings across Chicago so far this weekend, including a 17-year-old boy who was fatally shot Friday in Bridgeport on the South Side.

The teen and two others were sitting in a parked vehicle about 9:45 p.m. in the 200 block of West 37th Street when a black Dodge Durango pulled up and two men exited and began shooting at them, Chicago police said.

Davion Ward, 17, was struck in the back and was transported to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A 16-year-old boy suffered a graze wound to the head and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition, police said.

In nonfatal attacks, a 48-year old man was hurt in a drive-by shooting early Saturday in Humboldt Park on the West Side.
