A shooting Wednesday night wounded two men, including a bystander in a barbershop, in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

A 45-year-old man was outside about 8:15 p.m. in the 600 block of North Cicero Avenue when someone came up on foot and fired shots, Chicago police said.

The gunfire grazed the man but also hit a 56-year-old man sitting in a barber shop nearby, police said. He was struck in the lower back and was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition.

The 45-year-old was grazed in his leg and refused medical attention, according to police.
