Man Shot in Argument About Cell Phone Among 7 Injured in Weekend Violence

30-year-old man is in critical condition Sunday after he  shot several times during an argument about a cell phone, police said.

According to authorities, two men were sitting on a porch  around 1:30 a.m. Sunday after attending a party in the 11600 block of South  Harvard Avenue when the two got into an argument about the victim’s cell  phone.

One man fired several shots and the victim was taken to  Advocate Christ Hospital in critical condition.

Police said a 34-year-old man, who was also injured in the  shooting, was taken into custody but no charges have been filed.

The 34-year-old man was taken to Roseland Hospital with a  gunshot wound to the ankle and is in good condition.

On Saturday, police said a 16-year-old boy was shot in the  arm in the 1000 block of North Ridgeway Avenue.

The teen was walking on the street around 4 p.m. when he was  approached by an offender who fired shots and struck him in the arm.

The victim fled from the shooter and ran to the 800 block of  North Hamlin Avenue where he notified police.

Another teen was also shot in the arm Saturday just a few  hours earlier on the city’s South Side, officials said.

Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala said a  juvenile boy  was shot in the arm around 1:25 p.m. Saturday in the 2100 block of  West  68th Place.

Details surrounding the shooting were not immediately  available.

Earlier this weekend, a 15-year-old girl was wounded in a  shooting in the Fuller Park neighborhood minutes before a 25-year-old rapper was  shot several times while waiting to perform a concert in the Bucktown  neighborhood.

The shootings occurred within 30 minutes of each other  Friday.

Police said a 15-year-old girl was riding in the backseat of  a car around 11:15 p.m. in the 500 block of West 43rd Street when she heard  shots and felt pain, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John  Mirabelli.

The teen was taken to Stroger Hospital in stable condition  with a gunshot wound to the upper shoulder.

About 30 minutes later, a 25-year-old man waiting to perform  in a rap concert at a club in the 2300 block of West Fullerton Avenue in the  Bucktown neighborhood was shot several times, according to authorities.

The man was standing outside of the venue when multiple  shots were fired. He was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious  condition, Mirabelli said.

Earlier Friday, a 25-year-old man suffered a graze wound to  the chest after he was shot by someone on a bicycle in the 900 block of East  82nd Street.

The man was taken to Advocate Trinity Hospital in good  condition, officials said. No one is in custody for the shooting.
