Two people were shot in an SUV that then crashed into a bus shelter, injuring a pedestrian late Saturday in the South Shore neighborhood.

The 19-year-old woman and 26-year-old man were in a white SUV at 79thStreet and Exchange when a gunman fired shots from the sidewalk at 11:35 p.m., police said.

They drove off, hitting a bus shelter and pedestrian before taking themselves to South Shore Hospital, police said.

The pedestrian, a man whose age wasn’t immediately available, was taken to Christ Medical Center where his condition stabilized, police said.

The woman was shot in the abdomen and the man in the abdomen and right arm. They were transferred to Stroger Hospital and their conditions stabilized, police said.
