At around the same time, Oak Lawn police responded to a call from a vehicle going in the wrong direction near 105th Street and Pulaski Road. Oak Lawn officials found a man and woman in their twenties sitting in a Ford Fusion that was riddled with seven bullet holes and apparently tried to drive to the hospital. Both had suffered life-threatening gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen, the police said. The man and woman were transported to the Advocate Christ Medical Center.

Oak Lawn officers found a loaded 9mm pistol under the driver’s seat of the Ford Fusion and labeled it a “ghost pistol” because it had no serial number, making it undetectable, police said. Neither had a license to own or wield a firearm.
