SHARE 2 wounded in West Garfield Park shooting

Two men were shot Tuesday night in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side.

The men, 20 and 31, walked into an apartment about 11:20 p.m. in the 4000 block of West Jackson and spoke with a male who was sitting on the couch, who then pulled out a gun and opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

The 20-year-old was shot in the buttocks, while the older man suffered a gunshot wound to the right arm, police said. They were both taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where their conditions were stabilized.

A police source said both men are documented gang members.
