Two teenagers were shot Wednesday evening on the Near West Side.

The two boys, both 17, were shot about 6 p.m. in the 2100 block of West Washington Boulevard, according to Chicago police.

They told investigators they met outside with an acquaintance, and then multiple people appeared who fired shots, police said.

One teen was shot in the upper body and taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, police said. The other was shot in the arm and was taken to the same hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said.

Area Central detectives were investigating.
