GREATER GRAND CROSSING — Two people were wounded in separate drive-by shootings on the city's South Side early Tuesday morning, police said.
About 1:45 a.m., a 25-year-old man was shot in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood, police said.
The man was standing on the sidewalk in the 7500 block of South Michigan Avenue when someone inside a passing red sedan fired shots, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a Chicago Police Department spokesman.
The man was hit twice, once in the abdomen and once in the side of his body, Alfaro said. The man was taken to Stroger Hospital where his condition stabilized.
About 20 minutes earlier, a man was wounded in another drive-by shooting in the South Chicago neighborhood.
Police said a 41-year-old man was sitting in a parked car in the 8900 block of South Escanaba Avenue about 1:25 a.m. when someone inside a gray sedan opened fire.
The man was shot in the right side of his torso and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition also stabilized, Alfaro said.
There were two men in the gray sedan, police said.
As of early Tuesday morning, no one was in custody in connection with either shooting.
