Passerby among 3 shot in West Englewood

Sun-Times file photo

A 48-year-old woman was an unintended victim of a West Englewood neighborhood drive-by shooting that hurt two others late Saturday on the South Side.

A 17-year-old boy and 23-year-old man were standing on the front porch of a home about 9:40 p.m. in the 2000 block of West 68th Place when someone opened fire on them from a passing vehicle, according to Chicago Police. The teen was shot in the right knee and the man in the right foot.

A bullet also grazed the neck of a woman who was riding in a vehicle nearby heading south on Damen. She was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where her condition was stabilized, police said.

The two from the porch — who police said have documented gang ties — later showed up at Holy Cross Hospital. Their conditions were stabilized as well, police said.

About a month earlier, a quintuple shooting left two men dead on the same block.
