Man, 20, Killed, and Two Boys Wounded in Two Seperate Shootings

A man is dead and two young boys are wounded after separate shootings broke out in Chicago neighborhoods.

The office of the Cook County medical examiner stated that Daniel Cisneros, 20, is dead after being shot during a drive-by while standing in his backyard in Brighton Park. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, but was pronounced dead shortly after midnight.

In the city’s Ravenswood neighborhood, a 10-year-old boy was shot in the leg just before 10 p.m. Monday night,

The boy was shot in Ronan Park near the 3000 block of Argyle Street. Police say he was standing “with several others” when shots were fired. He was transported to Children’s Memorial Hospital.

Just two hours prior, around 8 p.m., another boy, 14, was shot in the city’s Chicago Lawn neighborhood.

After being approached by two men, the boy said one of them fired at him, with one shot hitting him in the right forearm. Police say he waited two hours before calling 911, though his reason for doing so was not released.
