Two teen boys shot in drive-by in Uptown

Two teenage boys — 15 and 17 — were wounded in a drive-by shooting Tuesday night in the Uptown neighborhood.

The teens were standing at the intersection of North Sheridan and West Wilson at 9:36 p.m. when someone inside a dark-colored vehicle fired shots at them, according to police News Affairs Officer Ronald Gaines.

The 17-year-old male was shot in buttocks and taken in good condition to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

The 15-year-old boy was taken in good condition to Children’s Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg, Gaines said.

No one was in custody early Wednesday, Gaines said.
