CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE: Nine people were killed and at least 15 others wounded in shootings across the city from Friday night through Monday morning, including a cabbie found shot to death in his cab, and a 25-year-old woman police believe was targeted after she was shot multiple times.

This weekend's fatal shootings include:

  • David Loggins, 52, shot in the neck at 1:23 a.m. Saturday in the 6500 block of South Champlain Avenue.
  • Adegboye Oguntade, 31, of south suburban Lansing, found shot to death in his taxi about 2:45 a.m. Saturday in the 1200 block of West 69th Street.
  • Michelle Gregory, 21, was shot multiple times about 4:30 a.m. Saturday after arguing with someone at a party in the 3900 block of West 19th Street.
  • Erik Loggins, 40, was found shot dead in his home about 12:40 p.m. Saturday in the 9700 block of South Carpenter Street.
  • Darryl Davidson, 23, was shot twice in the chest about 1:45 a.m. Sunday in the 1300 block of South Springield Avenue.
  • Brandon Miles, 19, was shot twice in the back about 2:50 a.m. Sunday in his home in the 1000 block of North Waller Avenue. Sources said he was standing in front of a window in his living room watching TV when he was struck by rounds fired from outside.
  • Kimberly Harris, 25, was shot multiple times in the face, head, chest and legs about 7 p.m. Sunday in the 2900 block of West Arthington Street. She was shot three times in the face alone, and police said they believe she was purposely targeted because of the extensive number of times she was shot.

  • An unidentified man was standing on the porch of a home when he was fatally shot in the 5800 block of South Shields Avenue at 8:30 a.m. Monday.
