Two people were shot late Monday in the South Shore neighborhood on the South Side, according to police.

About 11:13 p.m., a woman, 28, and a man, 27, were shot in the 6800 block of South East End Avenue, police said.

The pair were driving northbound on East End Avenue in a gray Chrysler Concorde when a man appeared and shot at the passenger side of the car multiple times, police said. They then drove to the 1500 block of East 69th Street and parked the car, where they called police.

Both the man and the woman were shot in their backs, though the man was shot multiple times, police said. Both were transported to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, and the woman was listed in good condition, police said. The man was listed in serious condition.

Area Central is investigating, and no one is in custody early Tuesday.
