Two teenage girls were shot Thursday in north suburban Waukegan.

Officers called for reports of shots fired about 5 p.m. near 8th Street and Prescott Avenue found the girls in the street with gunshot wounds, according to a statement from Waukegan Police Commander Joe Florip.

The girls, in their late teens, were taken to hospitals with injuries that were not life-threatening, Florip said. One of them lives in Waukegan, while the other is from Gurnee.

Florip said the shooting was an “isolated incident” and there is “no threat to the public.”
