Two 15-year-old boys, a ride share driver and another man were shot on the Near North Side early Thursday when someone in a passing car fired at another car.

The boys were standing on the sidewalk in the 900 block of North Orleans Street when someone in a red Dodge Charger fired at a gray car about 2:15 a.m., Chicago police said.

One boy was hit in the leg and the other was shot in the leg and foot, police said. They were taken to Lurie Children’s Hospital in fair condition.

A 38-year-old ride share driver was also shot while waiting for his passengers, police said. He was struck in the hand and was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in fair condition.

The fourth victim, a 20-year-old man, was later found at Balbo Drive and DuSable Lake Shore Drive — 2 12 miles away — and was taken in serious condition to Northwestern Hospital with a gunshot wound to his side.

No one was in custody.
