Four people were wounded — including a pregnant woman — in a shooting Saturday morning in the Morgan Park neighborhood on the Far South Side.

Two women and two men were standing on the sidewalk about 11:45 a.m. in the 1400 block of West 114th Place when someone came out of a gangway and opened fire, according to Chicago Police. The shooter then got into an “older model” car and drove off.

A 19-year-old woman, who is three months pregnant, was taken in critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with gunshot wounds to the right leg and back, police and fire officials said.

A 20-year-old woman shot in the left leg and back and a 23-year-old man shot in the back were taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, police said. A 20-year-old man was also taken to Stroger in good condition with a gunshot wound to the left leg.
