Chicago's First Homicide of 2014 Among 6 Shot Since Friday Saturday, Jan 4, 2014 | Updated 2:20 PM CST
A 30-year-old man was killed Friday afternoon in what is believed to be Chicago's first homicide of 2014, and at least five other people have been injured in shootings since Friday. Police responded to a call of a person shot around 1:15 p.m. Friday in the 300 block of West 114th Street where they discovered a man with gunshot wounds to the back, face and buttocks, police said. The man, identified as 30-year-old Ronald Sawyer, was initially transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center in serious condition, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada. He was pronounced dead at 4:08 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office. Police said no one was in custody as of Saturday morning and Area South detectives are investigating. Later Friday, a 52-year-old man was shot during an apparent robbery in the South Deering neighborhood. The shooting took place around 8:20 p.m. in the 2600 block of East 106th Street, Estrada said. The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in serious condition, according to authorities. Early Saturday morning, two men were shot during an argument in the 200 block of East 106th Street. The men were standing on a sidewalk just after 3 a.m. when they were involved in a verbal argument with a third man. The third man pulled out a gun and fired shots at both victims. A 55-year-old man was taken to Mercy Hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was listed in critical condition, police said. A 25-year-old man took himself to Mercy Hospital and was also listed in critical condition with wounds to the chest and right leg, Estrada said. Both men were later transported to John H. Stroger Hospital. Less than 40 minutes later, a 29-year-old man was shot while driving in the 3200 block of North Milwaukee Avenue. Police said the man was stopped on the block when an offender in another vehicle drove up and yelled gang slogans at the victim before firing into the car. The victim drove himself to Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center with wounds to the right leg. The man was treated and released, police said. Most recently, a man was shot during an apparent drive-by shooting on the city's South Side. Police said a 22-year-old man was shot around 10:50 a.m. in the 8000 block of South Artesian Avenue by an offender in a possibly white vehicle. The man was treated at the scene and refused further medical attention, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic.
