A physical altercation between four people Friday led to a 5-year-old boy being shot and two people being stabbed in Englewood on the South Side.

About 7:18 p.m., a woman, 33, got into a physical altercation with a 28-year-old woman in the hallway of a residence in the 6700 block of South Parnell Avenue and was stabbed in the left arm, Chicago police said.

Following the altercation, a 34-year-old man was leaving the residence with the woman who was stabbed when a 29-year-old man followed them out the door and stabbed the older man in the right arm, police said.

The 29-year-old man then went to the second floor of the residence, got a gun and fired shots outside a window toward a vehicle driven by the two people who were stabbed, police said. The shooter missed them but struck the boy who was in the vehicle in the left thigh.

He was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital where his condition was stabilized, police said.

The 33-year-old woman and the 34-year-old man were both taken to the Chicago Medical Center where their conditions were stabilized, police said.

The 28-year-old woman and 29-year-old man were taken into custody, police said.

Area South detectives are investigating.
