A man was seriously wounded in a shooting late Saturday in the Lawndale neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

About 10:50 p.m., the 21-year-old was riding in the passenger seat of a vehicle in the 1600 block of South Karlov when someone in a passing vehicle fired shots, striking him in the face, Chicago Police said.

The man was driven to Mount Sinai hospital, where he was in serious condition, police said.

Officers then spotted and started following a suspicious vehicle that ultimately crashed, police said. The vehicle’s four occupants were taken to hospitals, where they were arrested.

All four people were released without being charged, police said.
