Two men were shot early Saturday in the West Side Austin neighborhood.

The men, ages 29 and 33, were standing on a porch in the 4800 block of West Augusta about 2 a.m. when they heard gunfire and both felt pain, according to Chicago Police.

The 33-year-old was shot in the buttocks and was taken in good condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said. The younger man suffered a graze wound to the upper left leg and was treated and released at the scene.
