3 shots, 3 more stabbed within hours in Lake View East, police sergeant injured during arrest


Three people were shot and three others were stabbed for several hours late Sunday into early Monday in Lake View East, where police had stepped up patrols after the Pride parade.

At around 1.30am, three people were standing outside in the 3100 block of North Clark Street when they were hit by gunfire, police said.

A 46-year-old woman was shot in the abdomen and taken to Masonic Medical Center in Illinois in critical condition. a 30-year-old man was shot in the knee and taken to the same hospital in good condition; another man, 37, was shot in the leg and transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition.

No one was in custody.

About two hours earlier, a woman had been arrested after stabbing three people during a fight.

The woman, 24, swung a knife during a fight in the 1000 block of West Belmont Avenue around 11:25 p.m., police said. The four had argued before the confrontation turned physical.

  • A 28-year-old woman was stabbed in the chest, arm and back, officials said. She was listed in serious condition.
  • A 20-year-old man was stabbed in the back and was in fair condition, police said.
  • A second woman, 35, was stabbed in the buttocks and was in good condition.
  • The woman wielding the knife suffered a laceration to her face and was listed in fair condition, authorities said.

All four were taken to Illinois Masonic, police said. Charges were pending.

Hours earlier, less than half a mile away, a Chicago police sergeant was hospitalized after being punched during an arrest.

The sergeant was struck in the head by a 21-year-old woman in the 3300 block of North Clark Street, police said. He was taken to hospital with pain in his hands and ears, officials said.

The woman was arrested and charges were pending.
