The man, identified as 24-year-old Mohammad Habib, suffered gunshot wounds to his torso and was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The woman, believed to be about 23-years-old, was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition with a gunshot wound to her shoulder.

Then, around 2:23 a.m. Friday, three people were shot outside on the 1300 block of North Hudson. Police said the victims were uncooperative, and CPD had little information about what happened.

According to a media statement from police, a 41-year-old man was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition with gunshot wounds to his hip, lower back, and leg.

The second victim, a 40-year-old man who was shot one time in each shin, is believed to be the first victim’s brother. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in fair condition.

Police said the third victim walked away from the scene with a graze wound to his leg.

Area Three detectives are investigating both shootings.

Less than a month ago, four people were shot directly across the street from where the men were shot on Hudson this morning.
