Three people — including a 4-year-old girl — were shot Sunday night in the Portage Park neighborhood.

The girl, a 17-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man were shot just before 10:30 p.m. in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven on the northwest corner of Irving Park Road and Central, police said.

After they were shot, they walked into the store, where a clerk said he gave them some ice for their injuries.

A 17-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man were taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, and the girl was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. All were listed in serious-to-critical condition, authorities said. Area North detectives were investigating. Sam Charles
