A 24-year-old woman was sitting in the passenger seat of a parked vehicle about 2:34 a.m. in the 7500 block of South Calumet Avenue, Chicago police said. She and the other passengers were talking to people standing outside of the vehicle when someone unleashed gunfire.

The woman was hit in the head, police said. A 16-year-old boy and a 22-year-old man were also struck. The teen was hit in the arm, back and knee while the man suffered a gunshot wound to the back.
