Four shot in Englewood backyard

Four people were wounded in a shooting early Tuesday in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

They were sitting on a back porch near 56th and Green at 2:54 a.m. when someone entered the backyard and began firing at them, police News Affairs Officer Ronald Gaines said.

A 34-year-old man who was shot in the chest and a 40-year-old woman who was shot in the head were both taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, Gaines said. A 19-year-old woman was shot in the foot and was also taken to Stroger in serious condition.

A 22-year-old man who was shot in the arm was taken to St. Bernard Hospital in serious condition, Gaines said.
