A man and a woman were wounded in a drive-by shooting Friday night on the city’s West Side.

The 36-year-old woman was standing on the sidewalk about 10:25 p.m. in the 3000 block of West Lexington when someone in a green SUV fired shots, striking her in the legs, according to Chicago Police. She was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.

A 26-year-old man later walked into West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park with a gunshot wound to the upper right arm, police said. He was not with the woman who was shot, but told investigators that he was outside in the same block when he heard several gunshots and felt pain. His condition was stabilized.
