It has been a violent weekend in Chicago with multiple shootings across the city leaving five people dead and at least 25 people wounded since Friday night.

Two teenagers were shot late Saturday night near 63rd and St. Lawrence.

Sixteen-year-old Richard Modell was killed. The other teen, an 18 year-old male, suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

"It's been ongoing shooting for the past two hours over here," said community activist Andrew Holmes. "Young men, teens, standing out here. All of a sudden someone pulls a gun, discharges and someone's lost his life."

The 18-year-old was hospitalized in what officials say is "very critical" condition.
