CHICAGO — Two people were shot within a block of each other just one hour apart Tuesday night in Humboldt Park.
Even earlier in the day, a third shooting in the neighborhood left another two people wounded.
The most recent shooting happened at 8:46 p.m. A 17-year-old boy was standing on the sidewalk in the 1000 block of North Monticello Avenue when someone inside a dark-colored car fired shots at him while driving by, police said.
The boy was hit in his leg and he was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital. His condition was not available but he was listed as “stable,” police said.
About an hour earlier, at 7:40 p.m., a 29-year-old man was standing near the sidewalk in the 1100 block of North Monticello Avenue when someone in a dark car drove up to him, police said.
A passenger got out of the car, took out a gun and fired shots at the man. The man was hit in his wrist and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition was not available but he was listed as “stable,” police said.
Even earlier in the day, at 12:42 p.m., a 21-year-old man and 39-year-old man were in a car driving in the 3400 block of West Augusta Avenue when someone on the street fired shots at them, police said.
The 21-year-old was hit in his right arm and the 39-year-old’s torso was grazed by a bullet. The younger man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition was not available but he was listed as “stable,” police said. The other man declined emergency services.
No one was in custody in the shootings. Investigations were ongoing.
