At least seven people were shot across the city Monday night, including six shot within an hour, officials said.
About 6:15 p.m., someone shot a 21-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman in the 1300 block of West Washburn Avenue in the city’s University Village neighborhood, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Joshua Purkiss said.
The woman suffered a graze wound to the head and was taken in good condition to the University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said. The 21-year-old man was taken in critical condition to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, Langford said.
In a separate shooting at 6:12 p.m. in the 1300 block of South Loomis Street, a 23-year-old man was shot and critically wounded, said Langford. The man was also taken in critical condition to Stroger. Police said the shots may have come from a passing vehicle.
