Man, 65-year-old woman shot in West Englewood

A 65-year-old woman and 21-year-old man were shot Saturday afternoon in the West Englewood neighborhood.

They were standing near one another on a corner in the 2000 block of West 71st Street at 2:27 p.m. when someone exited an alley and started shooting at the man, police News Affairs Officer Nicole Trainor said.

The woman was shot in the back and arm, while the man was shot in the abdomen and suffered a graze wound to the thigh, Trainor said. They were both taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, but their conditions were not immediately known.
