Two people are in critical condition after a car they were traveling in was caught in the crossfire of a shoot-out Thursday night in East Garfield Park on the West Side.
About 10 p.m., two men and a woman were traveling in a vehicle north on California Avenue, and before attempting to turn north onto Van Buren Street, their vehicle drove in between two vehicles that were shooting at each other, Chicago police said.
A 38-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman were struck multiple times and taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, where they are in critical condition, police said. A 27-year-old man was struck in the right leg and taken to the same hospital, where he is in good condition.
Area Four detectives are investigating.
