Three men were shot in the Woodlawn neighborhood on the South Side Wednesday evening.

The three were standing outside about 6:50 p.m. in the 6300 block of South Eberhart Avenue when they were shot by someone in a passing gray sedan, police said. After the shooting, the car continued north on Eberhart before turning east onto 63rd Street.

One man, 22, was shot in the right leg and listed in good condition at Stroger Hospital, police said. Another man, 18, was shot in the right leg and taken to St. Bernard Hospital in good condition, police said.

The third man, 50, suffered a graze wound to his left leg and was treated and released at the scene, police said.
