An Austin neighborhood drive-by shooting left two people wounded early Saturday on the West Side.

The 19-year-old woman and 28-year-old man were outside about 4 a.m. in the 5200 block of West Quincy when someone opened fire from a dark-colored car, according to Chicago Police.

She was shot in the left foot and taken to Loretto Hospital, while he suffered wounds to both legs and was taken to Stroger Hospital. Their conditions stabilized, police said.

The man has documented gang ties, police said.

The pair were among six people shot within blocks of each other in less than two hours early Saturday, following a triple shooting and a man hit by errant gunfire while driving. Police said the shootings were being investigated as three separate incidents.
