Three men were killed and at least six other men have been wounded in separate shootings since Saturday morning, Chicago police said. 

The first fatal attack happened about 8:30 a.m. in the 10200 block of South State Street in the Fernwood neighborhood.

A neighbor discovered a man lying in the snow and called officers to check on his well-being, according to police. When they arrived, they found the man shot in the head. Police said the victim, who is believed to be 40 to 45 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two people were shot — one fatally — in the 10600 block of South Perry Avenue, also in Fernwood on the Far South Side, about 4 a.m. Sunday, according to police.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the two homicides in Fernwood were connected, officials said.

A man, 62, was shot in the stomach and right leg, and a second man, who investigators believe is in his 50s, was shot in the stomach and buttocks, police said. The second man later was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn and the 62-year-old remains in critical condition, officials said.

Not long after, around 5:30 a.m. Sunday, another man was killed in a shooting, police said.
