Four shot in related drive-by shootings on South Side

Found this story via our Blotter:
A 21-year-old man sustained a gunshot wound to his stomach about 10:15 p.m. near the intersection of 95th Street and South State Street, according to police News Affairs Officer Ronald Gaines. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in good condition,

A short time later near the intersection of East 95th Street and South Michigan Avenue, two men and a woman were also shot, Gaines said.

An 18-year-old man was shot in the left leg, a 19-year-old man was shot in the left thigh and a 19-year-old woman was shot in the right foot, according to a News Affairs release.

All are in good condition and they apparently drove themselves to Advocate Trinity Hospital, Gaines said.
This is a little too close to home! I hope we find out who was doing the shooting. I also hope they're actually caught and convicted!

  1. But according to our Police Superintendent, crime is down....

    I wonder if the shootings with the two men and one woman was classified as separate "aggravated batteries" or ONE "aggravated battery"?
