4 wounded in shootings on South, Northwest sides

A 17-year-old boy is in critical condition after he and a 19-year-old woman were shot early this morning as they sat in a vehicle in the Albany Park neighborhood, police said.

The shooting was one of at least three that happened Sunday night and early this morning, according to police.

The Albany Park shooting occurred around 2:25 a.m. in the 4900 block of North Whipple Street, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said. The teenagers were sitting in a parked vehicle when a gunman started firing, Alfaro said.

The boy was struck in the head and shoulder and was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition.

The woman was struck in the right forearm and was taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital, where her condition was stabilized, Alfaro said. She was later transferred to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston.

Earlier, about 8:40 p.m. Sunday in the Morgan Park neighborhood, two robbers approached two people in a gangway in the 11500 block of South Church Street, police said.

One of the assailants opened fire, striking one of the victims several times in the lower back, Alfaro said.

The 20-year-old man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition was stabilized, according to police.

A 23-year-old man was also shot early this morning in the West Pullman neighborhood, police said.

The man had been with others in a park in the 12300 block of South Harvard Avenue, police said. About 1 a.m., a van pulled up and several males got out and started shooting at the man, police said.

The man suffered a gunshot wound to the ankle and was taken to Roseland Community Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, according to police.

No suspects are in custody.
