During the fourteen hours between Friday afternoon and early Saturday morning, 25 people were shot in the city of Chicago, including one man who died after being shot on Friday afternoon and a three-year-old who was hit by bullets while being among seven others who were wounded in one attack alone.

Chicago police reported the 27-year-old man who was killed was shot in the chest and arm just before 3 p.m. while on the city's South Side, reports the Chicago Tribune. He later died in the hospital.

The toddler sustained a wound to the shin while he was with five people in a group, all of whom were shot while standing on a sidewalk at about 8 p.m. Friday. The seventh person who was shot in the incident, a 38-year-old woman, was standing in a nearby yard and was grazed on the arm.

Meanwhile, a teenager, between the ages of 15 and 17, died after he shot himself in the head after police chased him. Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said officers tried to question him about a weapon, when the teen ran and then shot himself.
