Chicago News

CHICAGO — Police are investigating after three people were injured after a drive-by shooting Sunday in Auburn Gresham.

At around 1:45 p.m., police were dispatched to the 8000 block of South Green near 81st Street on the report of a shooting.

Chicago police said three people were standing in front of a home when a black sedan, possibly a Chevy Impala, drove by and an occupant fired several shots.

A 20-year-old woman was shot in the chest and transported to the University of Chicago in critical condition.

A 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were also shot. The 24-year-old man was shot in the leg and transported in serious but stable condition.

The 22-year-old man was shot in the hand and transported in fair condition.

A neighbor across the street said he heard about six to seven shots when he was grilling in his backyard.

“I had just took some meat in the house, I heard the gunshots. He thought it was through the gangway, but it wasn’t,” said Stanley Harris. “I didn’t even know it was across the street, I came up the front of the house.”

No one is in custody as Area Two detectives continue to investigate.
