* In Rogers Park, around 4:12 a.m, a 30-year-old man was grazed in the right hand after approaching a black car in an alley that was blocking his path, in the 1100 block of West Columbia Avenue. The gunman fled after firing shots. The victim was hospitalized in good condition.

* In University Village/Little Italy, around 4:10 a.m., a 31-year-old man was found on the sidewalk after being shot in the leg in the 1300 block of South Morgan Street. He was taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition.

* In East Garfield Park, around 2:44 a.m., a 34-year-old man was shot while sitting in the back of a pickup in the 3900 block of Gladys Avenue. He was shot in the left arm and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.

* In West Englewood, around 1:45 a.m., a 34-year-old was shot in the right leg while standing with several men in the 6300 block of South Wood Street, and a stray round struck an unmarked police vehicle’s passenger door. The victim was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in fair condition. Police do not believe their vehicle was targeted.

* Also in Bronzeville, around 9:48 p.m., a 43-year-old man and his dog were both shot while they were in front of their home in the 4600 block of South Drexel Boulevard. The man suffered a graze wound to his hand, and was treated at the scene.

The gunman had fired the shots from an open rear door of a black Nissan Maxima, which fled north on Drexel.
