2 adults stabbed, boy, 5, shot in Englewood; 2 arrested, police say

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Three people were hurt and two others were arrested in connection with an incident in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood Friday night.

The incident happened in the 6700 block of South Parnell Avenue at about 7:20 p.m., police said. Two women, 28 and 33 years old, were fighting in the first-floor hallway of a residence in the block. Two men, 29 and 34 years old, came out into the hallway and the 29-year-old was stabbed in the arm, police said. That man went into a unit on the second floor, grabbed a gun and fired shots out of a window at the 33-year-old woman's car, which was parked on the street. A 5-year-old boy who was sitting in the car was struck in the thigh by that gunfire, police said.

The child was taken to Comer Children's Hospital for treatment, authorities said. The 33-year-old woman and the 34-year-old man, each stabbed in the arms, were transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center. None of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening and all of the victims were listed in stable condition.

The 28-year-old woman and the 29-year-old man were taken into custody, police said.

Authorities have not said whether the offenders and victims were connected.

Neighbors say they're tired of seeing police tape up on their block and that this scene is even more heartbreaking with one of the victims being a child.

"It is just sad around here," said Robin Dangerfield, who lives in the area. "It's Englewood and it's very sad that is what goes on around here almost every day."

Area South detectives are investigating.
