A man and woman were injured in a shooting Wednesday afternoon near a day care in south suburban Orland Park.

The shooting happened near 143rd Street and Will Cook Road and appears to be a targeted attack, Orland Park police said in a statement posted to social media.

A man, 23, and a woman, 31, were taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with injuries that weren’t life-threatening, police said.

The shooter left the scene, possibly in a black Ford Fusion with spoke wheels and heavily tinted windows, heading north on Will Cook Road, police said.
