Two teenage boys were wounded in a shooting Tuesday morning in the Fernwood neighborhood on the Far South Side.

About 10:30 a.m., the shooter appeared from a gangway in the 9900 block of South Parnell and began firing the boys, ages 15 and 16, while they stood on a sidewalk in the block, Chicago Police said.

The older boy was struck in the abdomen and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said. The younger boy suffered a gunshot wound to his right forearm and was taken to Roseland Community Hospital. Both of their conditions had stabilized.
