A woman died and nine others were injured early Saturday morning when two men opened fire on a sidewalk on the South Side of Chicago.

The 29-year-old woman was shot in the abdomen and left knee and later died at University of Chicago Medical Center, ABC-7 Chicago reported.

The other victims ranged in age from 23 to 46. They were taken to area hospitals for gunshot wounds in their arms, legs, feet and, for the 46-year-old, in his buttocks. All were in good to fair condition, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The incident was one of three mass shootings in the country overnight. In Savannah, Georgia, 1 person was killed and eight injured, including a 2-year-old and a 13-year-old, when a gunman opened fire in an apartment complex. In Austin, Texas, 13 people were injured when a man shot into a downtown crowd.
