5 wounded in shootings in the city, including a man who was shot in a robbery attempt



Jerry Cancer watched television in his home on South Side when he heard what he first thought was fireworks.

He ignored the noise first, until he heard the screaming.

"I just knew someone was shot," he said. [3759002] Krebs, 37, soon heard an ambulance rushing his street in the 8200 block of South Marquette Avenue in the South Chicago Quarter.

A man and a woman were shot while they sat in a parked vehicle at 9:50 pm, Chicago police said. The pair was injured in Wednesday's shootout in Chicago, including a 15-year-old boy

The 26-year-old man was shot in the right hand and left arm. He was sent to the Medical Center of the University of Chicago in critical condition. The 21

-year-old woman was shot in the hand and taken to the Advocate Trinity Hospital, where she was stabilized.

Less than an hour later, on the West Side, two teenagers were shot dead on the 3100 block of West Arthington Street in Lawndale. The gunman, an unknown man, approached on foot and fired at 10:35 pm, beating a 15-year-old boy in the leg and an 18-year-old man four times in his chest, the police said. Both teenagers were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where the 18-year-old is in serious condition, the police said. In the quiet scene on Arthington Street, the yellow tape stretched from a boarded-up flat over an empty lot to a fence and cars parked across the sidewalk. On the sidewalk, in the middle of the closed area, sat a white soft drink cup upright beside a piece of evidence.

Earlier, a man was shot dead Wednesday afternoon in the South Chicago neighborhood when someone tried to rob him; the man had nothing to fetch, police said in Chicago.

The man, 43 years old, was around 4:40 pm in the 8100 block of South Muskegon Avenue in South Chicago's South Side district when he was shot in the left calf, police said. The man walked in a private car to the South Shore Hospital, where his condition stabilized.

The man stood at the corner when a man drove up in a dark car and held him at gunpoint and demanded his property, the police said. The would-be robber found out that the man had nothing to take and started firing at the man, beat the police.

Area South investigators had no one in custody.
