Two men were wounded in a Chatham neighborhood shooting Tuesday night on the South Side.

The men, ages 31 and 38, were standing on the sidewalk at 8:55 p.m. in the 700 block of East 79th Street when someone inside a yellow car nearby fired shots in their direction, according to Chicago Police.

They both suffered gunshot wounds to the legs, police said. The younger man was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, while the older man was treated at Jackson Park Hospital. Both of their conditions were stabilized.
