Two men were injured in a shooting Tuesday night in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

The men, ages 27 and 34, were walking on the sidewalk in the 6100 block of South Laflin about 9:45 p.m. when they heard gunfire and realized they had both been shot, according to Chicago Police.

The 27-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the left arm and was taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said. The older man was shot in the abdomen and was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital.
