  • Four people were shot, two critically, about 10 minutes apart in Englewood on the South Side. Three men were standing in the 6600 block of South Halsted Street about 4:45 p.m. when someone got out of a car and opened fire, police said. A 28-year-old man was shot in the leg and back, a 33-year-old man in his lower body and a third man, 37, in his leg. They were all taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where the two youngest of the three were in critical condition. The third man’s condition was stabilized. About 10 minutes later, almost two miles northwest, a 29-year-old man was standing outside in the 5600 block of South Throop Street when he was struck in his right leg by gunfire. He was also taken to the University of Chicago, where his condition was stabilized. Police did not say whether the shootings were related.
