Three people were shot Sunday afternoon in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

A 17-year-old boy and two men, ages 20 and 22, were walking outside about 2:40 p.m. in the 1200 block of South Troy when they heard gunfire and felt pain, according to Chicago Police.

The teenager was shot in the leg, the 20-year-old man was shot in the right foot and the oldest man was shot in the leg, police said. They were all taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where the teen was listed in critical condition and the men were both in good condition.

A police source said all three are documented gang members.
