Five people were shot in the Park Manor neighborhood Wednesday night on the South Side.

The five — a woman and four men — were outside in the first block of East 71st Street shortly after 8 p.m. when several people walked up and opened fire, police said.

A 27-year-old man was shot in the left thigh and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, along with a 20-year-old man shot in the arm and back, according to police and fire officials. A 32-year-old woman shot in the head and a 20-year-old man shot in the chest were taken to Stroger Hospital.

All four were in serious-to-critical condition, fire officials said.

Police said a fifth victim, a 26-year-old man, took himself to St. Bernard Hospital and Health Care Center, where his condition had stabilized.
