Two people were shot early Monday in the West Side Austin neighborhood.

They were in an SUV about 1:30 a.m. in the 5400 block of West Jackson when a white sedan pulled up and someone inside opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

A 21-year-old man was shot in the left side of his head and his left arm, and an 18-year-old woman suffered a gunshot wound to her left wrist, police said.

They showed up at Stroger Hospital, where their conditions stabilized, police said.
