CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Three women were shot to death and at least seven other people were wounded in shootings across Chicago on Monday.

The most recent fatal shooting happened at 10:55 p.m. in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood on the South Side.

Paris Brown, 21, and a man thought to be in his 20s were sitting in a vehicle parked in the 7300 block of South Perry Avenue when a dark-colored SUV pulled up and someone inside fired shots at them, according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Brown, who lived in the block where she was shot, was struck multiple times and taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, where she was pronounced dead at 11:25 p.m., authorities said.

The man, shot in the back and leg, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn but his condition was not immediately known.

A 36-year-old man went on a shooting rampage at an Ashburn home on the Southwest Side Monday morning, killing two women and wounding a man before turning the gun on himself in a domestic incident, police said.

About 8:55 a.m., Edward Prince shot to death Nicole Loving, 23, and his 37-year-old girlfriend LaQuisha Hickman at a house in the 3500 block of West 79th Place, according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Prince pistol-whipped his 58-year-old uncle in the home and shot an 18-year-old man in the leg before committing suicide, authorities said.

Hickman had filed a domestic battery report against Prince the night before after a quarrel over her ending the relationship, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

The most recent nonfatal shooting happened about 11:30 p.m. in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side.

A 35-year-old man was walking in the 7700 block of South Peoria Street when he heard shots and realized he had been shot in the knee, police said. He was taken to Saint Bernard Hospital and Health Care Center in good condition.

Fifteen minutes earlier, a 21-year-old man was shot in East Garfield Park. The shooting happened about 11:15 p.m. in the 3100 block of West Monroe Street, police said. A friend drove him to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was listed in serious condition Tuesday morning.

At 10:50 p.m., a 27-year-old man was shot in the arm and leg in West Englewood. He was taken to a hospital in “stable” condition after the shooting, which happened in the 1800 block of West 58th Street, police said.

Monday afternoon, an 18-year-old man was shot multiple times in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood on the Northwest Side. He was walking in the 4800 block of West George Street at 1:20 p.m. when he heard shots and realized he had been struck twice in the right arm and once in the back, police said. He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in “stable” condition, according to police.

Less than an hour earlier, a 23-year-old man was critically wounded in another West Englewood shooting. He was standing in the 6700 block of South Marshfield Avenue about 12:35 p.m. when three people walked up and one of them shot him in the torso. He was taken to Christ in critical condition, police said.
