CHICAGO — A teenage boy and a young man were wounded in shootings Thursday night.
About 10:55 p.m., a 20-year-old man was shot in his groin in the Heart of Chicago neighborhood, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a Chicago Police Department spokesman.
The man was sitting in the back of a green Jeep heading south in the 2100 block of South Wood Street when someone inside a passing SUV fired shots at the Jeep. The man was shot in his groin and driven to St. Anthony Hospital. He was later taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.
Police said they believed the shooting was gang-related.
Earlier, a 17-year-old boy was shot in his arm and chest in Humboldt Park, Alfaro said. The teen was walking in the 1300 block of North Spaulding Avenue when someone in a light-colored minivan opened fire, police said.
The teen was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was treated and released. Police said they think the shooting was gang-related.
No one was in custody for either shooting.
