CHICAGO (CBS) – Two people were shot Friday morning in the South Loop near two CTA ‘L’ and subway stations.

Police said a 57-year-old man and a 30-year-old man were shot around 11 a.m. in the 1100 block of South State Street. The Roosevelt stops for the CTA’s Red, Green and Orange Line trains are about a block away. The Red Line station is a subway stop connected to the elevated station for the Green and Orange Lines.

Both victims suffered graze wounds, police said. Both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition.

The shooting prompted the Guardian Angels to patrol the area Friday evening into early Saturday — a presence that made some CTA riders feel safer, CBS 2′s Pamela Jones reports.

No suspects were in custody as of early Friday afternoon.
