CHICAGO — Two people were shot on the South Side Thursday evening, including a 56-year-old woman who was sitting on her porch, police said.
In the first incident, a 56-year-old woman was shot in her left foot in the 0-100 block of East 100th Place in Roseland about 5:15 p.m., said Officer Stacey Cooper, a police spokeswoman.
The woman was sitting on her porch when a car drove past a group of people across the street. Someone in the group fired at the car, but hit the woman instead, Cooper said.
The woman was taken to Roseland Hospital, where her condition had stabilized, Cooper said.
About 7:20 p.m., in the 8200 block of South Coles Avenue in South Chicago, a 20-year-old man was shot in the leg during a drive-by shooting. He was standing on the sidewalk when a car drove up, and someone fired shots, Cooper said.
Cooper said the man was in good condition, but did not know if he was taken to a hospital. Authorities said the victim is a documented gang member. Area South detectives are investigating.
