A man and a teenage boy were wounded in a shooting Saturday afternoon in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the South Side.

The 18-year-old man and 16-year-old boy were outside about 12:50 p.m. in the 4300 block of South Rockwell when someone got out of a vehicle, walked up and started shooting, according to Chicago Police. The shooter then got back in the vehicle and took off.

The 18-year-old was shot in the right leg and taken to Stroger Hospital, according to police. The boy was shot in the arm and leg and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital. Both their conditions were stabilized.

A police source said they are both documented gang members.
