Three men were wounded in shootings within four hours Friday on the West Side.

In the latest shooting, a man was seriously wounded in the Lawndale neighborhood.

The man, 20, was standing on the sidewalk in the 3600 Block of West Douglas Avenue when the shooter stepped out of a light-colored vehicle and fired around 1:30 p.m., Chicago Police said. The man was shot several times and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital.

About 20 minutes earlier, a man was shot in West Garfield Park. The 29-year-old was standing in the 3900 Block of West Gladys when he was shot in the thigh and taken to Mount Sinai in good condition, police said.

Around 9:30 a.m., a man was shot and wounded in Lawndale, about a block from the Douglas shooting. The man was walking in an alley in the 1300 block of South Homan Avenue when gunfire rang out from a dark-colored SUV, police said. The man was grazed in the leg and shoulder, but refused medical attention.

Police reported no arrests in any of the shootings.
