CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Two women are dead and a man injured after a shooting Monday night on the South Side.

The group was sitting in a parked vehicle at 11:38 p.m. in the 7700 block of South Eggleston Avenue when three males got out of a blue vehicle and started firing at them, Chicago police said.

Brittani Rice, 18, and Senobia Bratley, 19, were both shot several times in the body and taken to St. Bernard Hospital, where they were pronounced dead minutes later, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. A 19-year-old man in the vehicle took himself to University of Chicago Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the shoulder, and his condition was stabilized.

No one is in custody, police said. Area South detectives are investigating.
