Two men were shot and critically wounded early Wednesday on the South Side.

They were passengers in a vehicle traveling north at 3:59 a.m. in the 7600 block of South Stony Island when a burgundy Ford Focus pulled up beside it at a red light, according to Chicago Police. A passenger in the Ford then pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots into the vehicle.

A 28-year-old man was shot in the back and a 27-year-old was shot in the face, chest and leg, police said. They were both taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.
