CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE: At least 23 people - including a 15-year-old boy shot during an armed robbery attempt - were wounded in weekend shootings across the city since Friday night.

The bloodiest single shooting happened in the South Side Englewood neighborhood about 6:35 p.m. Saturday when four men were shot in a gas station parking lot, police said.

The four men - all in their 20s and 30s - were all listed in good or "stable" condition at area hospitals early Sunday, despite two of them suffering gunshot wounds to the chest, police said.

Police are seeking a shooter or shooters who fired from a small black vehicle, and no one was in custody early Sunday, police said.

The youngest victim was a 15-year-old boy shot by an armed robber early Saturday in the South Side Calumet Heights neighborhood, police said. He was walking down the 9300 block of South Anthony Avenue at 12:45 a.m. when a stranger pointed a handgun at him and announced a robbery.

The boy was shot in the leg while running away, police said. He was taken to Advocate Trinity Hospital in good condition.

The most recent shootings include a 25-year-old woman who was shot in the leg about 10:45 p.m. Sunday in the 8200 block of South Marquette Avenue and a 20-year-old man grazed in the back in the 2800 block of North Mason Avenue about 45 minutes later.

Both were hospitalized in good condition.

In the suburbs, four people are dead from shootings this weekend. Two of the fatal shootings occurred in separate incidents in south suburban Harvey, and one in Maywood involved an off-duty Chicago police officer. The off-duty officer fatally shot one of two men who allegedly attacked him after the officer crashed his motorcycle in the west suburb.
