SHARE Two shot in East Garfield Park

Two people were shot early Wednesday in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side.

About 1:50 a.m., a man, thought to be in his 20s, and a 34-year-old woman were involved in an argument with several males in the 3600 block of West Harrison, when the males pulled out handguns and opened fire, said police News Affairs Officer Ronald Gaines.

Both the man and the woman suffered multiple gunshot wounds and were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, Gaines said. The man was listed in critical condition, while the woman’s condition had stabilized.
