ENGLEWOOD — Two people were hospitalized after separate shootings in Englewood late Monday night.
A teenager is in serious condition after he was shot about 11:20 p.m., police said.
The 17-year-old boy was walking on the sidewalk in the 700 block of West 60th Place when two people walked up to him and opened fire, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a police spokesman.
The teen was shot in his chest but was able to run away, Alfaro said. He soon found someone he knew to drive him to St. Bernard Hospital.
The teen was then transferred to Stroger Hospital where his is currently in "serious-to-stable condition," Alfaro said.
About 10:50 p.m., a 20-year-old woman shot while inside her Englewood home.
The woman was standing in the rear of the first floor of her home when she heard shots and felt pain, Alfaro said.
The woman was shot in her abdomen and the left side of her chest. She was rushed to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where her condition stabilized.
Police believe the bullets that hit the woman were fired from the backyard of the home and came through a first-floor window.
No one was in custody in either shooting as of early Tuesday morning.
