CHICAGO -- Four people were wounded late Saturday  morning in a shooting on Chicago's South Side.

The shooting happened around 11:50 a.m. on the 1400 block of W. 114th Place in the Morgan Park neighborhood. According to police the four victims -- two men and two women -- were sitting on a porch when witnesses say someone ran out from a gangway and started firing.

Police say the men were transported to Stroger Hospital with injuries. One, a 23-year-old, is in critical condition while his 20-year-old brother is in good condition.

The two women were transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center. One woman, identified as Sidney Talbott, 20, was shot in the legs and is expected to be OK; the other woman, a 19-year-old who is three months pregnant, is expected to recover as well.

Talbott's relatives say she is going into her junior year at Knox College in Galesburg. She was  home for summer break and was hanging out at her boyfriend's house when the shooting happened.
