Four people were wounded in a drive-by shooting outside a restaurant in the West Loop early Wednesday — less than a mile from where five people were shot during a rolling gunfight the end of September.
The group was standing outside Alhambra Palace in the 1200 block of West Randolph Street when a black Jeep Cherokee drove past and someone inside opened fire about 12:45 a.m., Chicago police said. The Jeep fled east on Randolph Street.
A 41-year-old man was struck in the knee and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in fair condition, police said. A woman, believed to be in her early twenties, was also struck in the knee and taken to the same hospital in fair condition.
A 30-year-old man was struck in the left leg and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in fair condition, police said. Another 30-year-old man was struck in the thigh and taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition.
No one was in custody.
On Sept. 29, five people were wounded when shots were exchanged between cars during the evening rush between Grand and Hubbard streets on Milwaukee Avenue.
