CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Three people, including a pregnant woman, were shot on the Dan Ryan Expressway early Saturday.

About 1:25 a.m., a man and three women were in a blue 2008 Buick SUV when it broke down on the 71st Street exit ramp off southbound Interstate 94, Illinois State Police said in a release.

While they waited for help, someone in a black Dodge Charger with orange stripes pulled up and fired shots in to the SUV, striking the man and two of the women, Illinois State Police said.

Two women in the backseat were shot in the lower parts of their bodies, with a pregnant 24-year-old woman shot three times and a 19-year-old woman shot six times, police said.

The 27-year-old man, who was in the driver's seat, was shot four times -- once in the chest and three times in his arm, police said.

The fourth passenger was not wounded, police said.

The man and one woman were taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, while the other woman was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

All of the victims had non-life-threatening injuries and were in "stable" condition, police said.

The southbound 71st Street exit ramp had been reopened as of 7:45 a.m., police said.

No one is in custody as Illinois State Police investigate.
