Two men were wounded in an East Garfield Park neighborhood shooting early Monday on the West Side.

The men, ages 27 and 30, were driving north about 2 a.m. in the 400 block of North Sacramento when a black vehicle pulled alongside and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police.

The younger man was shot in the forehead and the older man suffered a graze wound to the left shoulder, police said. They drove to Norwegian American Hospital, where both of their conditions were stabilized.
