Three men were shot Sunday night in the Humboldt Park neighborhood on the West Side.

The men – ages 20, 21 and 22 – were walking down the side walk in the 4200 block of West Augusta Boulevard at 10:20 p.m. when a white SUV drove by and someone inside the vehicle shot the men, police said.

The 20-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the left leg, and the 21-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the right leg. They were both taken to Stroger Hospital where their conditions were stabilized.

The 22-year-old man suffered a graze wound to the left foot, and was taken to Norwegian American Hospital where his condition was stabilized.

The men are all known gang members, police said.
