Two men and a teenage boy were shot Monday night in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side.

The two 18-year-olds and the 15-year-old boy were walking in an alley at 10:05 p.m. in the 200 block of East 48th Street when a male in a white T-shirt fired shots in their direction, according to Chicago Police.

The boy was shot in the back and taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in serious condition, police said.

One of the men was shot in the left shoulder and taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said. The other man suffered a graze wound to the back and refused medical attention.

Police said the shooting appeared to have been gang-related.
