Four shootings -- two of them double homicides -- and a stabbing left 7 people dead Saturday, authorities said.
In what appeared to be the last homicide of the day, a 32-year-old man was fatally stabbed about 11:50 p.m. in the South Shore neighborhood on the South Side, police said.
The stabbing happened during a domestic argument in the 2500 block of East 73rd Street, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.

Less than two hours earlier, about 10:05 p.m., a 38-year-old man was killed in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, making him the sixth person shot dead Saturday, police said.
The man, identified as Norman Stokes, of the 6700 block of S. Aberdeen Street, died on the scene, in a vacant building in the 7000 block of South Carpenter Street, authorities said.
Earlier, in the second double homicide of the day, a 16-year-old boy and a 32-year-old man were gunned down about 5 p.m. in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side, police said.
Officers responded to a call of a person shot in the 4200 block of West Congress Parkway and found the two lying dead outside on the ground, according to the police.
The Cook County medical examiner identified the two as Dimitri Buford, 32, of the 1400 block of North Sedgwick Street in Chicago, and Antonio Fenner, 16, of the 4400 block of of West 15th Street in Chicago.

Living in Illinois does have its disadvantages...
Man if they just understood things could get a whole hell of a lot better if they would just stop and work with all of us to stop the madness in DC. Thats what DC is most afraid of, all of us coming together with a common cause to stop the oppression of people in general. I dont see them as the enemy, no more than I see someone who makes $500,000 a year as the enemy. Were all getting taken for a ride and have to pull our heads up out of our stink stars and work together dammit. This isnt friggin rocket science its as plain as day, but humans being the stubborn animals they are refuse to use the brains the good lord gave them and admit its just as much their fault as anyone elses and work on solutions, instaed of always fighting amongst ourselves. So fed up with it, I swear.
