CHICAGO — Four people have been hospitalized after at least two shootings overnight, police said.
About 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, three people were wounded in a shooting in South Austin.
Two men and a woman were standing in the 100 block of North Central Avenue when a gunman emerged from a nearby gangway and opened fire, said Officer Amina Greer, a police spokesman.
A 22-year-old man was shot in the back and taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition. A 24-year-old man was also taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition with a gunshot wound in the back. A 31-year-old woman was shot in the armpit and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, also in serious condition, police said.
About 1:50 a.m., a 17-year-old boy was injured in an apparent drive-by shooting in the city's Englewood neighborhood.
The teen was walking in the 600 block of West 64th Street when shots were fired from a passing red vehicle, Greer said.
The boy was hit in his foot and was taken to St. Bernard Hospital in good condition. After the shooting, the red vehicle drove off eastbound on West 64th Street, Greer said.
No one was in custody in either shooting as of early Tuesday morning.
