SHARE Two teen boys wounded in Englewood shooting

Two teen boys were shot in the Englewood neighborhood Monday night.

About 8:40 p.m., the two — ages 14 and 15 — were in the 5800 block of South Morgan when two other males rode past on bicycles, police said. One of the two bike riders stopped, turned around and shot the two teens.

The 15-year-old suffered a graze wound to his left calf while the other teen was shot in the left ankle, police said.

They took themselves to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where they were both listed in good condition Monday night, police said.
