UPTOWN — Four people were shot Monday while standing at a busy Uptown intersection, police said.

About 7:10 p.m., four men and a 16-year-old boy were standing near the sidewalk at Sheridan Road and Wilson Avenue when a car drove by and someone inside fired shots, police said.

The 16-year-old was hit in his buttocks and brought himself to nearby Weiss Hospital, where he was in good condition, police said.

Two men, 19 and 26, were shot in their buttocks and taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital in serious condition. A 31-year-old man was hit in his shoulder and brought himself to Weiss, where he was in good condition, police said.

No arrests have been made. Police tape sectioned off Wilson Avenue east of Sheridan Road into Monday night, blocking the street to traffic.

It is the second shooting in as many months at Wilson and Sheridan in Uptown. Altogether, the shootings had six victims.

On July 20, two men were shot in a drive-by at the prominent corner, according to reports. A 19-year-old man was hit in his leg, while a 20-year-old man was shot in his head and was taken to Illinois Masonic in critical condition.

Monday’s shooting is under investigation, police said.
