CHICAGO (WLS) -- A man and woman were shot during an attempted robbery in the Humboldt Park neighborhood early Friday.

According to police, the two were walking in the 1100-block of North Pulaski about 12:20 a.m. when two males got out of a dark-colored van and announced a robbery.

When the man and woman tried to flee, the would-be robbers opened fire, police said.

A 33-year-old man was shot in the back and side, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.

A 40-year-old woman was shot twice in the arm and also suffered a graze wound to the buttocks, police said. She was also taken to Stroger Hospital, where she is listed in good condition.

It's not clear if the shooters got away with anything. Area North detectives are investigating.
