Five Wounded In Lawndale Shooting

CHICAGO (STMW) — Five people standing on a street corner in the Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side early Sunday were wounded during a shooting.

At 1:50 a.m., five people were shot in the 1300 block of South Springfield Avenue, News Affairs Officer Ronald Gaines. The victims were standing on the corner when a “some type of a bus, a private bus” stopped at the intersection, according to News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

Some people who were on the bus got out and an argument ensued between them and some of those on the street, Mirabelli said. One of those who had gotten off the bus then took out a gun and opened fire.

A 33-year-old man suffered a graze wound to the arm, Gaines said. A male and a female each suffered graze wounds to legs. The three victims were taken to area hospitals.

Two other people took themselves to area hospitals.

An Ogden District police captain said none of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening. Following the shooting, Harrison Area detectives interviewed witnesses to determine just what happened and why, the captain said.

No one was in custody Sunday morning.
