CHICAGO — Three people were injured in two shootings overnight Friday.

One man was shot late Friday in Humboldt Park on the city's Northwest Side. The 48-year-old man told police he was standing on the sidewalk in the 1600 block of North Karlov Avenue when he heard shots around midnight Friday. The victim then realized he had been shot in the left thigh, according to Chicago police spokeswoman Laura Kubiak.

The man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital and is in stable condition. No one is in custody, police said.

Early Saturday morning, two men were shot in North Lawndale on the city's West Side. Police said the two victims were walking on the sidewalk in the 4100 block of West 16th Street around 3 a.m. when a man approached on foot and began shooting.

A 33-year-old man was shot in the right hand, and a 26-year-old man was shot in the right thigh, Kubiak said. Police said they believe the incident is gang-related.

The two men were also taken to Mount Sinai Hospital and are in stable condition. No one was in custody as of early Saturday morning.
