CHICAGO — One person is dead and another in critical condition following a shooting in Chicago Lawn.

A woman, 23, and a man, 26, were at a Mobil gas station in the 6000 block of South Western Avenue when someone opened fire about 12:50 p.m. Saturday, according to the Chicago Police Department. It appears the victims were cleaning the car.

No one was in custody.
