Someone shot two boys, both 16, about 5:11 p.m. Friday afternoon in the 1700 block of East 71st Place in the South Shore neighborhood on the South Side. Both were taken to Comer Children's Hospital in stable condition with gunshot wounds to their legs. 

Two other teens were wounded Friday afternoon -- a 15-year-old near North Avenue and Lorel Avenue in the Austin neighborhood and a 16-year-old near Western Avenue and Taylor Street in the Lawndale neighborhood.

A man in his 20s was in a car when someone shot him about 6:30 p.m in the 8300 block of South Maryland Avenue in the East Chatham neighborhood on the South Side, police said. He was shot in the bicep and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in serious condition.

One man was shot in the 5400 block of South Komensky Avenue in the Archer Heights neighborhood about 8:15 p.m., police said. He was shot after chasing people who robbed his brother's store, police said. 

About 9 p.m. a 30-year-old man was shot near Damen and Fullerton avenues in the Logan Square community area on the North Side, police said. He walked into Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the lower back. He was getting in a car when someone fired from a nearby alley, police said. 

A 21-year-old man was shot in the left buttocks about 9:45 p.m. in the 1300 block of North California Avenue in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, police said. He was taken to Norwegian-American Hospital. He was walking on a sidewalk when someone shot him.

Another person was wounded about 10 p.m. near 15th Street and Sawyer Avenue in the Lawndale neighborhood on the South Side. The 26-year-old was dropped off by friends at Mount Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound to the buttocks, police said. Police said he "was not being particularly cooperative."

A 21-year-old man was shot about 11 p.m. in the 3800 block of West 26th Street in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side, police said. He was walking with another man when he heard shots and felt pain. Police said a dark SUV was seen fleeing the area but it's not clear if it's related to the shooting.
