Three gunshot deaths in a span of 10 minutes marked a vicious Wednesday in brutal Chicago that featured several other shootings, some involving just kids.

Two people were shot in the head while sitting in a parked car in the West Side Lawndale neighborhood around 11 p.m., ABC News reported.

Ten minutes later, one man was killed and another wounded while walking in the Gresham neighborhood, The Chicago Tribune reported.

Around the same time, a 31-year-old man was in critical condition after being shot in the leg. He was rushed to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Earlier in the day other shootings left one man dead and wounded several others, including boys ages 11 and 16, the Tribune reported.

On the Far South Side, an argument between two men ended in the death of Mayo Martez, 20, who was shot in the head at around 1:35 p.m.

The other person, a 25-year-old who was shot in the face, was rushed to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park.

NBC News reported that the 11-year-old boy was shot and seriously wounded earlier in the East Side neighborhood on the Far South Side.

That happened when a vehicle drove past a home where the boy was standing and shots were fired. The boy wasn’t the intended target but got caught in a crossfire, sustaining bullet wounds to his left arm. He was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital.

Meanwhile, on the West Side, three people including the 16-year-old boy were shot at around 9:45 a.m., according to the Tribune.
