CHICAGO (AP) – Five people have been killed and at least 22 others have been wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.

A 43-year-old man was found with multiple gunshot wounds in an alley on the West Side earlier Saturday. And another man died after being shot following a car chase, also on the city’s West Side.

A fifth man was shot to death Friday night in the South Austin neighborhood.
