CHICAGO — At least four people were wounded in shootings Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday.
The most recent happened in Ashburn around 1:25 a.m. Wednesday, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a police spokesman. A 22-year-old man was standing in an alley near the 8000 block of South California Avenue when a white sedan drove up.
Someone inside the van opened fire, striking the victim in his left thigh. The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in "stable condition," Alfaro said.
Police said the shooting was possibly gang-related.
Two people were shot in Englewood about 7:10 p.m. Tuesday, said Officer Janel Sedevic, a police spokeswoman.
Both victims were involved in a fight with several males in the 6600 block of South Halsted Street when someone pulled a gun and fired several rounds.
A 24-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man were shot in their right shoulders. Both were taken to Saint Bernard Hospital in "stable condition," Sedevic said.
Police believe the incident was gang-related.
