CHICAGO (WLS) -- Two women were found critically wounded inside a parked car in the West Rogers Park neighborhood Thursday night, Chicago police said.

The victims, ages 29 and 20, were sitting inside a parked white SUV in the 6400-block of North Bell Street at about 10 p.m. when police said they heard multiple shots and felt pain. Neighbors said they heard about half a dozen shots ring out.

"Then I heard some woman yelling that 'my sister just got shot,'" said Tyler Dilly, neighborhood resident.

The 29-year-old woman was shot at least once in the neck and the 20-year-old woman was shot in the face. Both were transported in critical condition to St. Francis Hospital, police said.

It is believed the younger woman is a friend of the older woman's. Friends said the older woman lives in the neighborhood with her twin sister and her family.

No one is in custody. Area Three detectives are investigating. It is not yet known if the attack was random or targeted.
