CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A man was killed and eight others were hurt in shootings across the city on Monday.

The fatal shooting happened Monday night when someone opened fire outside a Rogers Park convenience store.

About 7:20 p.m., three men, ages 27, 25 and 36, were in a convenience store in the 1600 block of West Howard Street when someone standing across the street started shooting, police said.

Darnall Gordon, 36, of the 6300 block of North Sacramento Avenue, was shot in the chest and taken to Presence Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later, authorities said.

The 25-year-old was shot in the hip, wrist and leg and also taken to Saint Francis in serious condition. The 27-year-old transported himself to Saint Francis with a gunshot wound to his clavicle, police said.

The most recent non-fatal shooting happened Monday afternoon in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

A man and a woman, both 18, were outside in the 6300 block of South Maplewood Avenue about 2:50 p.m. when a gunman approached on foot and opened fire, police said.

The man was shot in the leg and taken to Holy Cross Hospital in "stable" condition, while the woman was taken in "stable" condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, also with a gunshot wound to her leg, police said.

The shooting may have been gang-related, according to police.

About four hours earlier, three people were shot in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

Two men, 24 and 22, and a 16-year-old boy were in the 400 block of North Central Avenue about 11 a.m. when they were shot, police said.

The 24-year-old was shot in the abdomen and taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood in serious condition, police said.

The 22-year-old was shot in the buttocks and taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in "stable" condition. The teen was shot in the left leg and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, also in "stable" condition, police said.

Monday's first shooting occurred about 20 minutes after midnight when a woman was shot in Chicago Lawn.

The 32-year-old woman was walking with two males near the corner of West 59th Street and South Campbell Avenue when two gunmen across the street opened fire, police said.

She was shot in the shoulder, thigh and backside and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in serious condition, police said.

The woman and both of the males, who were not injured in the attack, all have gang affiliations, police said.

No one is in custody for any of the shootings.

Additionally on Monday, a man was shot to death by police in the Southwest Side Gage Park neighborhood.

Police responding to a domestic disturbance in the 2500 block of West 50th Street found a man on the front porch holding a baby and a backpack, saying he had a gun in the bag, police said in a statement.

Another man came out and "an altercation ensued between the two," police said. Police then followed the men inside the home.

After police followed the men inside, someone else took the baby, and the man with the backpack picked up multiple knives, police said. He threatened police and the relative, and officers shot at him when he approached them "in an aggressive manner," police said.

Hector Hernandez, 21, of the 5200 block of South Maplewood Avenue, was dead at the scene, the Cook County Medical examiner's office said.

The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating that shooting.
