But police have said the deaths are each being treated isolated incidents.

“Our hearts are torn to pieces.”

A 21-year-old man was shot dead sitting in a car. A second man, 20, was injured in the gunfire.

Two more men were shot on Tuesday afternoon.

Chaundel Gentry, 25, died at hospital. A 24-year-old man was listed in a critical condition.

One person was shot dead in the city on Monday, according to local reports.

And a man was found dead inside a business on Sunday, while medics found a 62-year-old woman unresponsive at a home in West Ridge.

She suffered one gunshot wound to the chest and officers pronounced her dead at the scene.

INNOCENT BYSTANDERS SHOT

Two innocent bystanders were also shot on Sunday and a performance of Moulin Rouge at the Nederlander Theater was axed due to a “disturbance” that same day.

At 18 people have been injured in shootings in the city since Sunday.

The latest killings come just days after a weekend of deadly violence for the Windy City.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot said on Monday: “Particularly distressing is, again, the number of young people that seemingly are involved in acts of violence.”

DOUBLE DEATH

A shooting in New York City on Thursday morning left two people dead.

Cops are hunting three suspects after gunfire reportedly erupted near a recording studio in Manhattan.

New York has seen a more than 40 percent rise in major crimes in the past month, compared to the same period in 2021, according to the NYPD.

The Chicago violence comes just weeks after Milwaukee was rocked by more than a dozen shootings over the weekend of April 23.

A teen girl was shot dead while a 10-year-old was among the injured.

At least six people were killed last weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana.
