Two men walked into a hospital Saturday morning after they were shot in the Belmont Central neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

The men, ages 40 and 38, walked into Community First Medical Center at 7:21 a.m., according to Chicago Police. The older man had suffered a gunshot wound to the right knee while the younger man was shot in the left knee, and both of their conditions were stabilized.

They told investigators they were in a vehicle heading north in the 3300 block of North Central when a dark-colored sedan pulled up alongside them and someone inside fired at them. Police said the older man is a documented gang member.
