Seven Chicago shooting deaths were reported Thursday over the course of a 12-hour period in three separate shooting instances that all took place in a four-block radius.

The first report of a shooting came just after noon on Thursday, as a woman who was four months pregnant was found dead in her home in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The woman was found with a bullet wound to her head.

Less than four hours after the first 911 call, four men were shot dead at a nearby restaurant after a gunman opened fire.

Shortly after 11 p.m. that day there was yet another shooting. A man and woman were shot and killed while sitting in a car outside of the South Shore Cultural Center.

“Again in South Shore?” a woman said as she walked past one of the crime scenes late Thursday, according to the Tribune.

The pregnant woman who was found killed in the first reported shooting was identified as 26-year-old Patrice L. Calvin, NBC Chicago reported.

The second reported shooting that happened when a gunman walked in Nada Fish and Chicken left two men — 28-year-old Emmanueel C. Strokes and 32-year-old Edwin Davis — dead inside of the restaurant, USA Today noted.

The other two men — Dillon Jackson, 20, and his 19-year-old brother Raheem Jackson — reportedly were fatally shot as part of the same shooting in separate areas outside of the restaurant after attempting to flee the scene.

As for the Thursday night shooting, the two victims have not been identified by name, but the man was reported to be 27 and the woman 23.

According to USA Today, police have not said whether the shootings are connected in any way, and no suspects have been taken into custody. However, at least one of the shootings — the restaurant shooting — is believed to be gang related.

The man who was killed outside of the neighborhood’s cultural and recreational center was said to be a known gang member even though authorities don’t yet know if his murder was connected to his gang affiliation, USA Today said.

This is the latest reported violence in Chicago — a city that has seen nearly 900 murders in the last 15 months.
