CHICAGO — A man was taken to the hospital in serious condition following a double shooting on the South Side Monday afternoon.
Authorities were called to the 4700 block of S. Calumet just before 5 p.m. following reports of a shooting. According to police, two victims — a 23-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman — were struck.
The man suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the body and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in serious condition.
The woman was struck in the leg. She is considered in good condition, police add. Police confirmed the 46-year-old woman was an innocent bystander.
Twenty-six yellow evidence markers could be seen on the sidewalk and street — one for each shot fired.
Victims advocate Andrew Holmes says his understanding is two shooters approached on foot on 47th street with people coming and going from a variety of businesses and the CTA stop.
There are cameras in the area that may help investigators, including one at the CTA Green line stop. No shooter is in custody at this time, however.
The shooting comes on the heels of a violent weekend in the city that saw 25 locals injured by gunfire and four deaths.
