CHICAGO (STMW) – One man was shot in the face and two other men suffered less serious wounds during a Saturday afternoon shooting in the South Side Woodlawn neighborhood.

The three men were standing in the front of a house in the 6600 block of South Langley Avenue when a gunman approached at 3:23 p.m. and opened fire with a handgun, police said.

An 18-year-old man was shot in the face and taken in critical condition at University of Chicago Medical Center, police said.

The other two men, both 22, were shot in the right foot and right ankle, respectively, and initially taken in good condition to the medical center, police said.

The fire department said all three people took themselves to the hospital.

Calumet Area detectives are investigating, but nobody is in custody Saturday night.
