Police are questioning a “person of interest” for a Friday night shooting that left two teenage boys and a 24-year-old man injured — two of them seriously — in the South Side Woodlawn neighborhood.

The teens, 15 and 16, and the man were near 61st Street and Kimbark at 7:30 p.m. when someone fired shots from a vehicle, which drove off, police said.

The 16-year-old was shot in the neck and taken in serious condition to Stroger Hospital, police said. The man, shot twice in the abdomen, was also in serious condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

The 15-year-old’s condition was stabilized at Comer Children’s Hospital, where he was being treated for a hand wound, police said.

Police said they were questioning someone in connection to the shooting Friday night.
