Five people were shot Thursday night on the same Austin neighborhood block where at least six more people have been wounded in gunfire since last weekend.
About 9:30 p.m., the group was on a sidewalk in the first block of South Leamington when someone in a passing gray car opened fire, according to Chicago Police.
A 23-year-old man shot in the ankle was taken to Stroger Hospital along with a 23-year-old woman who was shot in the left foot. A 24-year-old man shot in both ankles and the forearm was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, as was a 22-year-old man with graze wounds to both knees. The fifth victim, a 20-year-old woman, took herself to Loretto Hospital with a graze to the right arm.
Police said four of the five victims have documented gang ties. All their conditions were stabilized.
