CHICAGO — Three people were injured, one critically, in two separate shootings overnight on the city's West and South sides.
A shooting in Chicago Lawn late Monday night sent one man to the hospital in critical condition, police said.
About 11:40 p.m., two men got into an argument in the 6300 block of South Rockwell Street, said Officer Amina Greer, a police spokesman. One man pulled a gun and shot the other.
The 43-year-old man was shot in the right side of his back, Greer said. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in critical condition.
About a half hour earlier, two people were wounded in a drive-by shooting on the Near West Side.
Police said several people were standing on the sidewalk in the 200 block of South Western Avenue about 11:15 p.m. when shots were fired from a passing light-colored sedan.
A 47-year-old man was shot in both of his ankles and was taken to Stroger Hospital where his condition stabilized, Greer said.
A 16-year-old was also injured. The teen was shot in his left heel and was taken to Stroger Hospital by a family member. His condition also stabilized, Greer said.
No one was in custody in either shooting as of early Tuesday morning.
