Two teenage boys were shot in the West Pullman neighborhood Sunday afternoon on the Far South Side.

They were outside about 5:15 p.m. in the 700 block of West 123rd Street when a blue car drove by and someone inside opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

A 16-year-old shot in the left shoulder was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, and a 17-year-old shot in the left side was taken to MetroSouth Medical Center in Blue Island. Their conditions were stabilized, police said.
