Two men were shot Monday night in the South Side Englewood neighborhood.

The men, ages 23 and 27, were in a vehicle stopped at a red light in the 700 block of West 71st Street about 11:15 p.m. when a dark-colored car pulled up alongside and a male inside opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

The younger man was shot in the back, while the older man suffered gunshot wounds to the right arm and left leg, police said. They drove to Saint Bernard Hospital and Health Care Center and were both later transferred to Stroger Hospital, where their conditions were stabilized.

A police source said both men are documented gang members.
