In a separate incident, a police officer was shot hours later. His condition was not immediately known, spokesman Tom Ahearn said.

The downtown shootings come amid a surge in deadly violence in Chicago in recent years, and follow other downtown-area shootings this year, including one that left two people dead and seven injured outside a fast-food restaurant and a shooting in Millennium Park that killed a teen.
