CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Eight people were shot and four killed Wednesday in incidents of gun violence across Chicago, including a man shot during a domestic incident in Roseland.

The 31-year-old was sitting in a vehicle about 9:20 p.m. in the 11300 block of South Edbrooke Avenue waiting to pick up a relative when a male he knew approached on foot, Chicago police said. The pair argued and the male fired multiple rounds before running off.

The man was hit in the arms, chest and ribs, police said. He was pronounced dead at Roseland Community Hospital.

No arrests have been made as Area South detectives are investigating.

On Wednesday afternoon, a man was shot to death in South Chicago.

The 23-year-old was standing on the sidewalk at 1:46 p.m. in the 8700 block of South Kingston Avenue when someone walked up, pulled out a handgun and started shooting, according to police. The man was hit in the head, chest, left wrist and right middle finger.

He was taken to Trinity Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. Area South detectives are investigating.

In Englewood, one man was killed and another wounded in a shooting.

The pair were on a front porch about 11:30 a.m. in the 1800 block of West 57th Street when two males ran up and one of them opened fire, police said.

A 21-year-old man struck by gunfire ran to the back porch of the home, police said. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

The other man, 24, was grazed in the back of his head, police said. His condition was stabilized at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
