Three people were shot in a drive-by Wednesday in East Garfield Park on the West Side.

Three men were standing on the sidewalk at 2:25 p.m. in the 700 block of North Lawndale Avenue when a black Chevrolet Impala drove by and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago police.

A 25-year-old was shot in the abdomen and taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said. A 22-year-old was shot in the right arm but refused transport to a hospital.

The third man, 18, was taken to Stroger Hospital with a gunshot wound to his back, police said. His condition was stabilized.

The Impala continued south on Lawndale after the shooting, police said.
