Four people were injured in shootings on the West and South side late Tuesday and early this morning, police said.
In the most recent shooting, someone inside a dark-colored sedan opened fire about 2 a.m. outside a South Side gas station, wounding a 20-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman walking down the sidewalk, police said.
Bullets struck the man in the back and the woman in the buttocks, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said. Both were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where they were listed in serious condition.
After the shooting, police placed yellow evidence markers on portions of Ashland and West 90th street adjacent to the brightly lit gas station, which shares a parking area with a fish and chicken restaurant. Inside the police tape blocking sections of both streets, a detective spoke to officers standing near gas pumps and later walked inside the station's convenience store.
About 10:20 p.m., a 19-year-old man was shot in the back in the 1100 block of North Parkside Avenue, in the South Austin neighborhood, police said.
The man was shot in the back and taken to Mount Sinai, Hospital, where he was listed in serious condition, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.
