Two men were wounded in a drive-by shooting Monday morning in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side.

The two men were in the 3800 block of West Gladys about 10:45 a.m. when someone fired shots from a black Nissan, according to Chicago Police.

A 28-year-old man was shot in the lower back and taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition, police said. A 21-year-old man was shot in the left elbow and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.

Both victims are documented gang members and convicted felons, police said.
