A drive-by shooting in the West Side Lawndale neighborhood left two men injured — one critically — early Wednesday.

The men, 24 and 27, were sitting in a parked van in the 3400 block of West Roosevelt at 2 a.m. when a dark-colored car pulled up, and someone inside fired shots, police said.

The 27-year-old was shot multiple times and was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.

The other man was shot in the arm and had been treated and released from Mount Sinai by 4:45 a.m., police said.

A source said both men are documented gang members.
