CHICAGO (STMW) – Two men were injured when shots rang out in the Englewood neighborhood Monday night.

Bullets struck a 27-year-old man in the knee and one of his fingers while he and another man were standing in the 5500 block of South Shields Avenue about 9:45 p.m., police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

The other man, who is 25, was grazed on the stomach when a bullet whizzed by him, police said.

Police said they were unsure how the shooting unfolded, though they noted a dark-colored vehicle was seen speeding away from the scene.

The 27-year-old man was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County for treatment.

The 25-year-old found his own way to University of Chicago Hospitals where he was in good condition.

No one was in custody as Area South detectives investigated.
