Two men were shot early Saturday in the South Side Back of the Yards neighborhood.

They were standing on a porch in the 5300 block of South Justine about 1:35 a.m. when they heard shots and felt pain, police said.

A 28-year-old man was shot in the abdomen and a 56-year-old man was shot in the right leg and back, police said. Both were taken to Stroger Hospital, where their conditions stabilized.

Police could not immediately confirm a report of a third victim who was battered at that address.
