UPTOWN — A series of shootings have left three people wounded in less than a week in Uptown, according to police.

The most recent shooting happened just before 3 p.m. Wednesday when a 41-year-old woman was shot while riding in a car in the 4700 block of North Clarendon Avenue. The woman was a passenger in the car when a man standing on the sidewalk opened fire, police said in an incident report.

She was hit in the shoulder and made her way to nearby Weiss Hospital before being transferred to Illinois Masonic in good condition, police said.

The shooter got away in a dark-colored SUV, which was seen heading southbound on Clarendon, police said.

On Monday, a 37-year-old woman was shot in the 4900 block of North Kenmore Avenue, police said.

The woman was on the sidewalk at about 6:50 p.m. when two people walked up and began firing. She was struck once in the chest and was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital, where her condition stabilized, police said.

On Friday, a 23-year-old man was shot near the Wilson Avenue Red Line station in the 4500 block of North Broadway, police said.

At about 3:30 p.m., the man was on the sidewalk when shots rang out. He was struck one in the thigh and made his way to Weiss Hospital, where his condition stabilized, police said.
