CHICAGO — Two men were hospitalized, one seriously, after two separate shootings Saturday night, police said.
About 7:50 p.m., a man was shot in the back in the city's Gage Park neighborhood, according to police spokesperson Officer Amina Greer.
The man, 40, was shot after multiple people approached him on the 2400 block of West 54th Street and "announced a robbery," Greer said. One of the offenders began shooting and the man was struck in the back, Greer said.
The offenders fled the scene without taking anything from the man. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.
Later, about 10:15 p.m., a man walked into Little Company of Mary Hospital with a bullet wound to the finger, Greer said.
