Two women were wounded Wednesday in a shooting in Gresham on the South Side.

The women, 30 and 38, were walking towards a residence about 12:30 a.m. in the 8700 block of South Ada Street when they were shot by an unknown man who was on foot, Chicago police said.

The 30-year-old was struck in the torso and the 38-year-old was grazed by a bullet in the abdomen, police said. The 30-year-old was transported to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn while the 38-year-old was able to take herself to the same hospital.

Both their conditions were stabilized, police said.

It is unclear if the pair were the intended targets of the shooting as there were a group of people on the porch of a residence near where they were shot, police said.

Area South detectives are investigating.
