Four people were hospitalized with injuries from a violent domestic incident in the Uptown neighborhood Sunday night. Two of the injured were being considered offenders by police and one of the victims was listed in critical condition.
An evidence technician was seen recovering a bloody bottle from the scene and a 911 caller reported that two people had been struck with a hammer, but police did not publicly announce what kinds of weapons were used.
Police were called to the 4500 block of North Sheridan after witnesses reported people had been injured and someone was pinning the offender to the ground around 6:30 p.m. Arriving officers found four people bleeding and the Chicago Fire Department declared a Plan I EMS response.
According to police, a man and a woman were injured in a physical altercation with a 19-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man in the vestibule of a residential building.
The victims, a 22-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man, each suffered multiple head injuries and were transported to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston. The woman’s condition was stabilized, but the man was listed in critical condition.
Police said the female suspect received cuts to her chest and right hand. Her condition was stabilized at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. The male suspect received minor scrapes and was taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital in good condition.
Both suspects were being questioned by Area North detectives.
