Three men were wounded, one of them critically, in a shooting Tuesday evening in the Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side.

They were on a sidewalk about 7:20 p.m. in the 3000 block of West Roosevelt when another male got out of a dark-colored sedan and fired shots in their direction, according to Chicago Police. The shooter then got back into the car and took off.

A 33-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the body, while a 28-year-old and a 43-year-old were shot in the buttocks, police said. They were all taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where the 33-year-old was in critical condition and the other men’s conditions stabilized.

Area North detectives were investigating the shooting.
