Two people were shot Wednesday afternoon in the South Side Fuller Park neighborhood.

The victims were standing on a front porch in the 5500 block of South Shields a few minutes after noon when two males in a green Chevrolet fired shots, according to Chicago Police.

A 29-year-old man was shot in the buttocks, and was taken to Christ Medical Center, police said. A 20-year-old woman was also shot, and was taken to St. Bernard Hospital. Both of their conditions were stabilized.
