Two people were wounded in a shooting Monday afternoon in the South Side Chatham neighborhood.

An 18-year-old woman and a 54-year-old man were leaving a restaurant in the 7800 block of South King Drive when a light-colored sedan pulled up and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police.

The woman suffered a gunshot wound to her right knee, while the man was shot in his left arm, police said. They were both taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where their conditions stabilized.

Area South detectives were investigating the shooting.
