Two shot in West Town

Two men were shot early Sunday in the West Town neighborhood.

The duo were standing in the 2500 block of West Division Street at 1:45 a.m. when a large group of males walked up and one of them pulled out a handgun and opened fire, police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.

One of the men, 21, was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in “stable” condition with a gunshot wound to the left shoulder, Alfaro said.

The other man, also 21, was shot in the right foot and taken to Norwegian-American Hospital, where he is expected to be treated and released.

No one is in custody as Area North detectives investigate.
