A man was shot and critically wounded Sunday morning shortly after another was fatally shot Saturday night in Logan Square on the Northwest Side.

A 22-year-old man was in the rear seat of a vehicle in the 2900 block of North Lawndale Avenue when two motorcycle riders rode alongside of the vehicle and began shooting at the vehicle, Chicago Police said.

He was shot in the back of the head and taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center where he was listed in critical condition, police said.

No one was in custody as of early Sunday morning.

About 20 minutes earlier, a man was fatally shot about two miles away.
