Two teenage boys were shot Monday afternoon in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side.

The boys, ages 15 and 17, were standing in a gas station parking lot about 12:45 p.m. in the 3800 block of West Roosevelt when shots rang out and they were both struck, according to Chicago Police.

The younger boy was shot in the back and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, while the older boy suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and was taken to Stroger Hospital, police said. Both of their conditions were stabilized.
