Three people were shot Friday night in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

The three males, ages 17, 19 and 21, were sitting in a parked vehicle in an alley in the 6000 block of South Richmond about 9:45 p.m. when a dark-colored SUV pulled alongside and a passenger opened fire, police said.

The 17-year-old boy was shot in the left leg, the 19-year-old man suffered a graze wound to the abdomen and the 21-year-old man was shot in the left arm, police said.

They drove themselves to Holy Cross Hospital, where all three were listed in good condition, police said.

A police source said the 19-year-old man is a self-admitted gang member.
