CHICAGO -- An investigation is underway after three people were shot in a drive-by shooting in the city's Little Village neighborhood.

Someone in a vehicle opened fire just before 3 a.m. Monday in the 2400 block of South Trumbull, and injured three people.

49-year-old Jose Hernandez was sleeping inside his apartment building when a bullet grazed his forehead.  When he reached up to touch the wound on his head, a second bullet hit him in the hand.

Outside of Hernandez's home, a 30-year-old man was shot in the leg and is in serious condition at Mount Sinai Hospital. A 25-year-old man was shot in the chest and is in critical condition at Mount Sinai Hospital.

Little Village Alderman Rick Munoz said it's a tragedy so many guns are on the street.

"We tell grandmas, call my office and I will come pick up the gun and take it to the 10th district. We don’t want these guns on the street," said Munoz.

Police are searching for the blue vehicle involved in this shooting. No other details have been released at this time.

No one is in custody.
