(CBS/STMW) – A shooting late Saturday night left two people dead and another injured in the Logan Square neighborhood.

Three people were in a vehicle in the 2300 block of North Springfield at 11:45 p.m. when someone walked up and opened fire at the vehicle, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said. The vehicle then struck several parked cars.

A 16-year-old boy was shot in the back and cheek and taken to Illinois Masonic, where he was pronounced dead, Greer said. A 21-year-old man was shot in the head and also taken to Masonic, where he was pronounced dead.

An 18-year-old man was shot in the finger and taken to Norwegian, where he was listed in good condition.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the fatalities.

All three victims have gang affiliations, according to a police source.
