Two people were injured in a shooting on the Dan Ryan Expressway in Chatham Sunday morning.

Illinois State Police said it happened around 12:12 a.m. Sunday on the Dan Ryan near 79th Street.

A third-party caller traveling northbound called police after they heard gunshots and watched another car "swerve to the right and crash on the ramp to 79th St.," according to a statement from Illinois State Police Trooper Mindy Carroll.

The caller also reported seeing three people exit the vehicle and run away, police said.
