CHICAGO (STMW) — Three men were shot near the South Side Woodlawn neighborhood Wednesday afternoon.

The shooting happened at about 2:30 p.m. in the 800 block of East Marquette Road, according to police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala.

The men, ages 23, 26 and 33 were shot in what appears to be a drive-by, Zala said. The 23-year-old was hit in the leg and foot, the 26-year-old was hit in the leg and buttocks, and the 33-year-old was shot in the foot.

They were all taken to University of Chicago Hospital, Zala said.

This shooting marks the third drive-by in less than 24 hours in the city.
