Two men were wounded in separate Fernwood neighborhood shootings that happened within three minutes and three blocks of each other Friday afternoon on the Far South Side.

At 2:22 p.m., a 30-year-old man was sitting in a car parked near 105th Street and Wentworth when someone got out of another vehicle nearby and opened fire, hitting him in the arm, according to Chicago Police. The man was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition was stabilized, police said.

At 2:25 p.m., officers responded to a call of a person shot at 102nd and Wentworth and found a 25-year-old with a gunshot wound to the right side of the chest. The man had been standing in front of a home when he heard gunfire. He was taken to Christ in serious “but stable condition,” police said.

There was “no indication” that the shootings were related, police News Affairs Officer Thomas Sweeney said. Area South detectives are investigating.
