CHICAGO -- Three people were shot while they were sitting in a car on the North Side. As they drove themselves to the hospital, their cart struck a nurse who was riding her bike near the hospital.
The injured nurse, Karen Irene Thomas, underwent surgery and is expected to recover.
Thomas was hit by the shooting victims’ car on the sidewalk as she rode her bike last night.

Two gunshot victims were admitted to the hospital. The third victim was released.
Police are searching for suspects.
