Four people were wounded in a drive-by shooting Wednesday morning outside a restaurant on a popular strip on Chicago's Near West Side.

The shooting happened around 12:45 a.m., as the group was standing in the 1200 block of West Randolph Street, just outside the Alhambra Palace Restaurant. That's when police said a black Jeep Cherokee drove past and someone inside opened fire.

The Jeep could be seen fleeing eastbound on Randolph Street, authorities said.

A 41-year-old man was shot in the knee and taken to an area hospital in fair condition, police said. A woman, believed to be in her early twenties, also suffered a gunshot wound in the knee and was taken to the same hospital in fair condition.

A 30-year-old man was shot in the left leg and was hospitalized in fair condition, police said. A second 30-year-old man was struck in the thigh and in serious condition at a local hospital.

Area Three detectives are investigating, Chicago police said.
