A man in his 20s found shot in the head on a sidewalk in Back of the Yards was the weekend’s sole homicide in Chicago, according to police.

At least 19 other people were wounded by gunfire in the city, bringing to at least 486 the number of people shot in Chicago this year, according to data kept by the Tribune. There have been at least 109 homicides, lower than the last two years but higher than other recent years.

Around 4 a.m. Sunday, a 25-year-old man was found shot to death in the 1900 block of West 52nd Street on the South Side, police said. Police released no other details and the medical examiner has not released his name.

On Sunday evening, the weekend’s youngest victim, a 15-year-old boy, was wounded in the Gage Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side. The teen was shot in the arm in a drive-by shooting and taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
