Emergency crews rushed to the 500 block of Langside Street at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, responding to reports of a shooting.
A woman who appeared to be in her mid-20s was carried from a home in a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance, said Corrigan Reid, who lives a block over on Furby Street and attended the scene.
Langside was taped off between Ellice and Sargent avenues as police officers knocked on doors to interview neighbours.
The street was crowded with about six police cruisers, three ambulances and a police dog unit. The police helicopter hovered overhead.
An initial report at the scene said there was a double shooting, but that could not be immediately confirmed.
