One man was killed, and four people were wounded, in separate shootings Tuesday and early Wednesday.

In the homicide, a man was shot by someone on foot while he walked in the 2700 block of East 76th Street in the South Side's South Shore neighborhood around 5:18 p.m. Tuesday, police said, correcting earlier information that the shooting took place about 6:05 p.m.

He suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition, but was later pronounced dead, police said.

Juan Jerome William Mason-Perry, 20, was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital at 6:07 p.m. on Tuesday after being shot in the 2700 block of East 76th Street, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. Mason-Perry died after suffering multiple gunshot wounds in the attack, the office determined Tuesday.

It wasn't known whether the gunman said anything to Mason-Perry before the shooting, police said Thursday. Following the shooting, the gunman ran west through a vacant lot.

Most recently, a 23-year-old man was shot in the leg and left side around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday, police said. He was on the sidewalk in the 4700 block of South Prairie Avenue in the South Side's Bronzeville neighborhood when he heard shots and felt pain. 

He took himself to Provident Hospital, where he was listed in serious condition. 

Also in the Bronzeville neighborhood, a 17-year-old boy was shot in the back around 10:40 p.m. Tuesday, police said. The teen took himself to Mercy Hospital and Medical Center, but was transported to Stroger Hospital, where his condition was stabilized. 

He had just gotten out of a parked vehicle in the 600 block of East Bowen Avenue when someone came out from between two parked cars and fired shots at him, according to police. 

Late Tuesday, police encircled a white sedan with crime scene tape just outside of the Emergency Room at Mercy Hospital. Officers also worked at the second scene on Bowen, placing at least two evidence markers in the grass near the residential street.

Earlier, a 20-year-old man was shot in the neck and critically hurt about 12:50 p.m. in the 6300 block of South Talman Avenue in the Southwest Side's Marquette Park neighborhood, police said.

The man was standing outside of a home when two assailants confronted him and fired shots before fleeing, police said.

He went to Holy Cross Hospital but was transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition, according police.

A 27-year-old woman was also wounded in a South Side shooting. 

The woman was shot about 10:20 a.m. in the 7100 block of South May Street in the Englewood neighborhood. She walked into St. Bernard Hospital and Health Center with a gunshot wound to the lower back, police said.

No arrests have been made.
