Two shot in Englewood

Two men were shot early Thursday in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

About 3:55 a.m., the men, 31 and 35, were in a vehicle in the 6600 block of South Union when a dark-colored SUV pulled alongside and someone inside fired shots, police said.

The 31-year-old man was shot in the lower back while the 35-year-old was shot in the chest, police said. They were both taken to Stroger Hospital, where each of their conditions had stabilized.
