A man and woman were shot in West Pullman Saturday.

Two people were wounded Saturday in a shooting in West Pullman on the Far South Side.

A man and woman, 38 and 27, were walking outside around 3:40 a.m. in the 11500 block of South Eggleston Avenue when they heard multiple shots and attempted to seek cover, Chicago Police said.

Both victims were shot once in the buttocks and were taken to Roseland Hospital where their conditions were stabilized, police said.

This was the third shooting involving two or more victims on the Far South Side in about three hours, according to police data.

Around 12:50 a.m., three women were shot and wounded while passing through Fernwood. The three victims, 21, 23 and 24, were traveling westbound around 12:50 a.m. in the 200 block of West 105th Street when someone started shooting at their vehicle, police said.

The 21-year-old woman was shot once in her buttocks, the 23-year-old in her ankles and the 24-year-old in her leg, police said. One of the women drove the three to Roseland Hospital where their conditions were stabilized, police said.

About two hours later, two men were wounded while in a vehicle in the 13000 block of South Evans Avenue, police said.

One of the victims, 38, was shot multiple times in his pelvic area, and a 39-year-old victim suffered four gunshot wounds throughout his body, police said. Both were taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where they were listed in critical condition, police said.

No one from any of the attacks was in custody.
