Two people were wounded Wednesday in a possible shootout on the Stevenson Expressway near Cicero Avenue that shut down outbound lanes for hours.

A man, 20, and woman, 46, were traveling in a southbound car when shots rang out from another vehicle about 8:30 a.m., Illinois State Police said in a statement.

A male and female victim were found at a gas station near 53rd and Harlem Avenue, according to Summit Fire Chief Wayne Hanson. They were taken with multiple gunshot wounds to Loyola University Medical Center, where they were both conscious, he said.

The pair had wounds that weren’t life-threatening, state police said.

All southbound lanes were shutdown at Pulaski Road from 9:30 a.m. until 11:20 a.m., state police said. State police did not release additional details.

Media reports claimed the pair were wounded in a shootout, and WGN reported there were around 40 shell casings recovered.

A Chicago police spokesperson couldn’t confirm a report claiming that CPD arrested someone in connection to the shooting.

Shootings on Chicago-area expressways more than doubled in 2020 over the previous year, according to state police. Earlier in February, the state allocated more than $12 million to state police to install high-definition cameras to help solve shootings on expressways.
