Two double-shootings minutes apart on the West and South sides of Chicago ended in the deaths of three people and the critical wounding of a fourth person late Wednesday night.

A man and a woman were sitting in an SUV in the Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side when they were shot and killed around 11:10 p.m., police said.

Officers taped off the area around the dark-colored SUV, which sat angled in the street in the 4700 block of West Arthington Street, the driver’s side door open.

Police said the man and woman were both pronounced dead on the scene.

Ten minutes later, a man was killed and another man was wounded as they were walking in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side around 11:20 p.m., police said.

The other man, 31, was shot in the pelvic area and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in critical condition, police said.
