Police say officers in the 39th District were flagged down by the victims, a 19-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man. The male victim told police that he and his girlfriend, who is pregnant, were stopped in traffic at 46th and Market streets when a male suspect approached their vehicle and fired at them several times. 

The woman was struck multiple times in the chest and groin and was hospitalized in critical condition. Her boyfriend was hospitalized in stable condition after he was struck once in the arm.
