Illinois State Police are investigating an overnight shooting on the Ohio Street feeder ramp in River North. Three people showed up at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for treatment of “non-life-threatening injuries” after the shooting, the agency said.

Chicago police officers and nearby residents reported hearing gunfire in the area around 2:07 a.m. A bullet-riddled Kia rolled up to the hospital about 15 minutes later with three victims, according to CPD dispatch reports. Details about their injuries and conditions were not immediately available.

Chicago cops found shell casings on the Ohio Street ramp just west of its termination at Orleans Street. CPD surveillance cameras recorded the shooting, which involved a gunman who fired from a gray Toyota Highlander, an officer said.

The Toyota was reported stolen from the 2500 block of West Devon in West Ridge on Sunday.

Anyone who saw the shooting or has other information is asked to contact ISP at 847-294-4400, or email Witnesses can remain anonymous, the agency said.
