CHICAGO (AP) — Overnight shootings in Chicago have killed three people and injured at least eight others, including a 16-year-old boy.

The dead included 17-year-old Clifton Barney, whose body was found early Friday night with a gunshot wound to the chest in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/18Suit3 ) that the two other people killed were both struck in the head in separate shootings on the West Side.

One of them was a 27-year-old man who was shot during an argument on the sidewalk around 4 a.m. Saturday.

According to the newspaper, the 16-year-old who was among the wounded was part of a group of people shot at by a gunman who approached them on foot in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood on the Northwest Side.
