Three teens were shot in the West Englewood neighborhood Monday evening on the South Side.

About6:15 p.m., they were in an alley in the 2000 block of West 70th Place when someone walked up, opened fire and then took off in an SUV, according to Chicago Police.

Two 18-year-old men — one shot in the hand, the other in the arm and chest — were taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, along with a 17-year-old boy shot in the leg. Their conditions were stabilized, police said.
