A 45-year-old man was shot about 1:45 a.m. Wednesday in the 7500 block of South Ingleside Avenue, Police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.
Two people approached the man from behind and opened fire, fleeing on foot, police said.
The man was shot in the leg and ran a block east to the corner of East 76th Street and South Ellis Avenue, police said. He was taken to Jackson Park Hospital, where his condition was stabilized.
Earlier, a 50-year-old man was shot about 8:40 p.m. Thursday in the Near Southwest Side's Heart of Chicago neighborhood.
Police said the shooting happened in the 1800 block of West 21st Place. According to the initial investigation, the man heard gunshots and stepped outside a home to see what was happening, Greer said.
He was apparently struck in the shoulder shortly afterward, police said, citing preliminary information.
The man was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition was stabilized.
No suspects were in custody in the shootings as of early this morning.
