Three people were killed and two others were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Thursday evening and early Friday.

Thursday night, a 27-year-old man was killed while walking with his girlfriend in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

About 8:15 p.m. Thursday, two unknown suspects walked up to Dennis Glover and his girlfriend in the 700 block of South Kilbourn Avenue and shot him multiple times in the chest, police said. Glover was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he later died, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.

Two men knocked on the door of a residence about 8:15 p.m. in the 1600 block of South Central Park Avenue looking for a girl inside, police said.

Elijah Johnson answered the door and got into a physical struggle when the two suspects tried to force their way inside, according to police and the medical examiner's office.
