Four men were wounded in a shooting Sunday in Garfield Park on the West Side.

They were congregating on a corner about 1:43 a.m. in the 4600 block of West Erie Street when a male unleashed gunfire from across the street, Chicago police said.

Two men, 27 and 25, were taken to Stroger Hospital where their conditions were stabilized. The older man was struck in the leg and foot, and the younger man was hit in the back and legs.

A 34-year-old man shot twice in the leg took himself to Mount Sinai Hospital where his condition was stabilized, police said. A fourth man, 30, took himself to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Lawn with a gunshot wound to the leg. His condition was stabilized.

No one is in custody as Area North detectives investigate.
