Two men were shot in the Humboldt Park neighborhood Tuesday evening on the West Side.

The men, ages 23 and 31, were standing outside about 5 p.m. in the 3800 block of West Augusta when someone walked up and opened fire, according to Chicago Police. The shooter then ran away.

The 23-year-old man was shot in the left leg and the 31-year-old suffered gunshot wounds to both legs, police said. Both were taken in good condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.

Police said the older man has documented gang ties.
