Twenty-nine people were shot and six killed so far in Chicago weekend gun violence.

A 31-year-old man was shot Sunday morning in Lincoln Park on the North Side. About 4:30 a.m., he was inside a short-term rental property in the 900-block of West Wrightwood Avenue, when he was shot in the buttocks, Chicago police said. He walked in the Illinois Masonic Hospital and is in good condition, police said.

Officers were able to go to the rental property and detained the people inside, but witnesses have been uncooperative, police said. Area Three detectives are investigating the shooting.

Two men were wounded in a shooting early Sunday in Lawndale on the West Side. They were sitting inside a parked vehicle about 2:45 a.m. in the 2700-block of West Polk Street when they heard shots and felt pain, Chicago police said. One man, 27, was shot in the lower back and elbow and the other, 22, was shot in both arms, police said.

They self-transported to Stroger Hospital and are in stable condition, police said. No one is in custody as Area Four detectives investigate.

Two women were shot, one fatally, Saturday in Kenwood on the South Side, according to preliminary information from Chicago police.

About 2:40 p.m., a person entered the vestibule of an apartment building in the 4900 block of South East End Avenue and asked to use a phone before firing shots in the direction of the women, Chicago police said.
