Two 13-year-old boys were wounded in shootings minutes apart Thursday night on Chicago’s West and South sides.

In the first attack, around 8:20 p.m., one of the boys was outside in the 1900 block of South Drake Avenue when someone shot him in the leg, Chicago police said.

The boy ran home and a family member brought him to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was listed in good condition, police said.

About five minutes later, the other boy was standing outside in the 1800 block of West 46th Street when someone riding in a gray Chevy Impala opened fire, police said.

The boy was struck in the foot and taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was listed in good condition, police said.

There was no one in custody for either shooting.
