Two female victims were seriously injured and underwent surgery after they were wounded in a shooting in Waukegan where nearly 60 shots were reportedly fired.
The Waukegan Police Department and Waukegan Fire Department responded around 6:15 p.m. Wednesday to the Citgo gas station, 1005 Golf Road, for a report of a shooting.
Officers learned two victims had been shot and were already at Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan, according to fire department radio traffic.
Officers arrived at the hospital to find one of the female victims had driven her own car to the hospital.
She had sustained a gunshot wound and was taken to surgery, a police report said. She is expected to survive.
The second female victim had been driven to the hospital and dropped off.
She was found by officers outside of the hospital lying on the ground, the report said.
She was transferred to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for surgery and admitted to the intensive care unit.
Officers secured the crime scenes at both the gas station and the hospital, which was placed on lockdown.
Waukegan Sixth Ward Alderman Keith Turner, whose ward the shooting occurred in, said at least 57 shots were fired in the shooting.
Several residences were also struck by the gunfire, Turner said.
Police have not released further information on how many shooters there were or whether any arrests have been made.
