A 17-year-old boy and a man were shot after entering a ride-share car early Friday in the South Shore neighborhood.

A 17-year-old boy and a 21-year-old man were getting into the car in the 7600 block of South Bennett Avenue when a blue Dodge pulled up and someone inside fired shots about 1:25 a.m., Chicago police said.

The ride-share driver brought the teen and the man to a relative's house in the 8300 block of South Luella Avenue, where emergency crews responded. The driver then went to South South Chicago Avenue and Jefferey Boulevard to flag down officers, according to police.

The teen was shot twice in the arm and the man suffered a gunshot wound to the torso, police said.

Both were transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center in good condition, police said.

No one was in custody.
