CHICAGO (WLS) -- Two people were shot, including a child, at an apartment complex in Chicago's Woodlawn neighborhood, police say.

A witness says there was a group of people standing outside the parkway Garden Apartments in the 6400-block of South Calumet when a black car pulled up. The witnesses says a person got out of the car and started firing shots into the crowd. Some of the bullets went through a window, striking a woman and a child who were inside that home.

Neighbors say the child is a 3-year-old boy, but police have not confirmed the age or gender.

Chicago police say the shooting occurred just after 9 p.m. A child was shot in the face and taken to University of Chicago Comer Children's Hospital where their condition has been stabilized. A 28-year-old woman was shot in the temple and transported to Stroger Hospital, where her condition has also been stabilized.
