Three shot on Southwest Side, two others across city

Tribune reporter

Adult siblings, a man and a woman, were shot outside their mother's house after she broke up a party Saturday night in the Marquette Park neighborhood, according to police.

They were standing outside in the 6200 block of South Albany Avenue about 9:20 p.m. when someone emerged from nearby and started shooting. Both were struck in the legs, police said. 

Moments earlier their mom arrived home and told everyone to leave, according to police. It's not clear what hospital the man, 21, and woman, 18, were taken to. 

About 90 minutes later a 23-year-old woman was shot in the 2700 block of West 62nd Street, also on the Southwest Side in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood. She was the passenger in a car that someone approached and fired into, police said. 

The driver of the car had spoken with her son, who asked her to pick him up at that location. When the driver arrived and spotted a man who looked like her son, he approached the car and started shooting, hitting the 23-year-old woman. 

The driver brought her passenger to Holy Cross Hospital and she was transferred to Advocate Christ Medical Center, police said, where she's being treated for gunshot wounds to the face and shoulder. 

Sunday morning, a 20-year-old man told police he was shot before 2:30 a.m. just west of Western Avenue on North Avenue in the Logan Square neighborhood. He walked into Norwegian American Hospital with a gunshot wound to the thigh and was released after being treated for the graze wound, police said. Investigators weren't able to find a crime scene at the busy intersection, though. 

About 2:05 a.m., a 28-year-old man was shot in the neck in the 900 block of West Cullerton Avenue in the Pilsen neighborhood. He's in serious condition at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. A relative first drove him to Rush University Medical Center but he was transferred to Stroger, police said.
