Two teenage girls suffered minor gunshot wounds Tuesday evening near a Bronzeville performing arts high school, Chicago police said this morning.

The girls, ages 14 and 16, were walking with a group in the 500 block of East 35th Street at about 6:40 p.m. when they heard gunshots and realized they had been hit, police said, citing early reports.

The 14-year-old was shot in the ankle, while the older girl suffered a graze wound to her calf, police said.

Both were taken to Mercy Hospital where they were treated and released.

No arrests had been made as of this morning.

The shooting happened near the Chicago High School for the Arts, 521 East 35th St., the site of the old Doolittle Primary School.

Police didn't say whether the victims were students at the school. School officials weren't available this morning.
