Two men shot in Chicago Lawn

Two men were shot in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood early Thursday on the Southwest Side.

The men, ages 34 and 36, were sitting outside about 12:30 a.m. in the 2900 block of West 63rd Street when they “heard shots and felt pain,” police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

The younger man was shot in the hip and the older in the shoulder, Greer said.

They were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where their conditions stabilized, police said.
