Four people were wounded in a shooting Tuesday night in Lawndale on the West Side.

The wounded were standing on a sidewalk in the 1200 block of South Lawndale Avenue about 8:45 pm when someone approached and opened fire, the Chicago police said.

A 43-year-old woman went to Saint Anthony’s Hospital in serious condition with a gunshot wound to the chest, officials said.


Another woman, 30, was shot in the face and went to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.

A 27-year-old man was taken to Mount Sinai in good condition with a gunshot wound on the leg.

A second man, 26, was shot in the left shoulder and taken to Mount Sinai in good condition.

“We’re just trying to figure out the story and go from there,” one officer at the scene said.

No one was in custody as detectives investigate.
