CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Six people were shot, three of them fatally, Monday in Chicago.

A 36-year-old woman was shot and killed in a motel in Norwood Park on the Northwest Side, police said.

She was inside a motel room with a 64-year-old man at about 11 a.m. when someone knocked on the door, entered and fired shots, Chicago police said.

The woman died at the scene with a gunshot wound to her head, police said.

The shooting happened at the Esquire Motel, 6145 N. Elston Ave., according to a law enforcement.

A 21-year-old man was shot and killed in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side.

He was walking at about 2:22 a.m. in the 4400 block of South Whipple Street when a male suspect approached him and shot him in the face and leg, police said.

Details about the shooting remain unknown as police have not located any witnesses.

In non-fatal shootings, a 17-year-old boy was among two shot in South Shore.

He and 18-year-old man were in front of a home at about 8:37 p.m. on East 75th Street when they heard gunfire and felt pain, police said.
