ENGLEWOOD — A section of Englewood that’s been guarded by a group of mothers for years but rocked by violence this summer was targeted again Thursday night.
Just over a day after friends and neighbors laid the block’s last victim to rest, three people were shot and wounded in the 7300 block of South Stewart Avenue.
That’s less than two blocks from where two mothers were killed late last month at the corner of 75th and Stewart. A group called Mothers Against Senseless Killings has stood watch on that corner since violence struck there in 2015.
Just after 8 p.m. Thursday, a gunman fired shots from a passing, light-colored Dodge Journey, hitting a 23-year-old man in his chest, arm and side, police said. An 18-year-old man standing nearby was shot in his leg, and a 24-year-old man was shot in his leg, arm, shoulder and face. Police called the shot to the face a graze wound.
All three victims were taken to the University of Chicago Hospital, where their conditions weren’t released, but police said they were stable.
No one is in custody. Area South detectives are investigating.
