Two shot in West Pullman

Two men were shot early Monday in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side.

The men, 17 and 20, were parked in a vehicle in the 12500 block of South Yale about 2:20 a.m., when two people exited a dark-colored SUV nearby and fired multiple shots in their direction, police said. The shooters then jumped back in the SUV, which sped away eastbound.

The 17-year-old was shot in the buttocks while the 20-year-old suffered gunshot wounds to the leg and abdomen, police said. They drove themselves to Roseland Community Hospital, where both of their conditions had stabilized.
