CHICAGO | Separate shootings Friday night in Chicago have wounded a 15-year-old girl and a rap artist who was hit by several bullets while waiting to perform a concert.

Chicago police spokesman John Mirabelli says the teenage girl was hit while riding in the backseat of a car shortly after 11 p.m. in the Fuller Park neighborhood on the South Side.

WMAQ-TV reports that she was struck in the shoulder and taken to Stroger Hospital in stable condition.

The other shooting took place about 30 minutes later in Bucktown in northwest Chicago. The 25-year-old who was hit was standing outside the venue where he was waiting to perform a concert.

Mirabelli says he was hospitalized in serious condition.
