A lone gunman wounded three people shortly after midnight Tuesday in the South Austin neighborhood on the far West Side.

Two men, ages 22 and 24, were both shot in the back and are in serious condition at Stroger Hospital.

A 31-year-old woman was wounded in the arm pit.

She was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, also in serious condition.

A block west, on North Parkside Avenue, officers taped off and guarded a yard where a gun believed to be involved in the shooting was recovered.
