During a weekend that saw another mass shooting and a person shot by a Chicago police officer, at least 73 people were shot, 12 of them fatally in the city, according to police and Tribune records.

The men, ages 23 to 50, were gathered in a yard in the 4800 block of West Race Avenue when a man with a gun entered the yard around 12:30 a.m. and began shooting at them, police said in a media notification.

Later that night, a male was shot as he ran from tactical officers making a street stop in Bronzeville.
