CHICAGO — Two men were wounded in shootings on the South and West sides Tuesday night.
The most recent occurred about 9:55 p.m. in Little Village, said Officer Amina Greer, a police spokeswoman. A 21-year-old man was shot in his hand and back and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in "stable condition."
Police heard gunshots in the 3000 block of South Tripp Avenue and noticed a van speeding away from the scene, Greer said. Officers pursued the van to southwest suburban Lyons, where the suspects hopped out and ran away.
Police caught two men and recovered a gun, Greer said. Charges are pending.
A 29-year-old man is in serious condition after he was shot in his leg in an Altgeld Gardens parking lot, Greer said. The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center after the shooting, which happened about 8:30 p.m. in the 13000 block of South Evans Avenue.
No one was in custody.
Earlier Tuesday, a 16-year-old girl was shot in her chest in Pilsen.
