Three Shot In South Side Drive-By

CHICAGO (STMW) — Three men reported to be street gang members were wounded in a drive-by shooting in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood on the South Side Sunday morning.

The shooting took place in the 7900 block of South Ingleside Avenue about 6:35 a.m., police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada said.

The shots were fired from a 4-door, black Chevrolet vehicle, police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak said.

A 25-year-old man suffered a gunshot to the back and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Kubiak said. A 20-year-old man suffered a gunshot to one of his legs and was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, and a 23-year-old man had a graze wound to the back and was taken to Jackson Park Hospital, Kubiak said.

A law enforcement source said Sunday morning that all three victims had street gang affiliations and were believed to be members of the Gangster Disciples.

Area South detectives are investigating.
