Two boys were shot in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood on the South Side Sunday morning.

The 16-year-old boys were shot in the 7300 block of South Woodlawn Avenue at 10:47 a.m., when they were approached by a group of people. One person from the group shot at the boys, and then the group ran away, police said.

One of the boys suffered a gunshot wound to the leg, and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where his condition was stabilized, police said.

The other boy suffered a graze wound to the leg, and he refused medical attention at the scene. Police said this boy is a gang member.
