Two teenage boys were wounded — one critically — in a shooting Monday night in the South Shore neighborhood.

The boys, ages 14 and 16, were standing on the sidewalk in the 1600 block of East 69th Street about 9:35 p.m. when they were shot, police said.

They were taken to the University of Chicago’s Comer Children’s Hospital. The 14-year-old, who was shot in the back, was listed in critical condition, and the 16-year-old suffered a gunshot wound in his upper right thigh, police said.

No one was in custody. Area Central detectives were investigating.
