ROGERS PARK — Two teens playing basketball in Rogers Park Tuesday night were wounded in an apparent drive-by shooting, according to police.
A 17-year-old was shot in the arm and an 18-year-old received a graze wound to the buttocks, police said.
Around 10 p.m., a passenger in a light-colored SUV opened fire on the young men, who were playing basketball near Stephen F. Gale Elementary School in the 7600 block of North Marshfield Avenue, police said.
Both teens were taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston and listed in "stable" condition and no one is in custody, he said.
It was the second time this week that gunshots rang out in the neighborhood.
Two people were hospitalized with gunshot wounds Sunday after a shootout near Morse and Greenview avenues, according to police.
The shooting happened after one of the victims left a nearby venue after a musical performance, said John Warner, a CAPS facilitator. The victim then ran into another group.
"From what I know," he said, "they ran into each other, words were exchanged, and then weapons were drawn."
The victims and suspected shooters — Fredy Soto, 21, of 6900 N. Greenview Ave. and Alexander Telles, 25, of the 900 block of E. 100th Pl. — were charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon. They appeared in bond court on Oct. 15.
Police said there was no indication that the two shootings were related.
