CHICAGO (CBS) — Two shootings occurred in Pilsen within blocks of each other Saturday.

Investigators were called to 19th and Halsted around 2:30 a.m. for a drive-by that left a 19-year-old with a bullet in his stomach. He was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition.
Less than a 5-minute walk away, and only 2.5 hours earlier, another shooting occurred on 17th and Newberry.
Police say 14-year-old Damien Santoyo was fatally shot in the head while on a front porch with two other people.
The shooters yelled gang slogans from a car as they open fired, according to Chicago Police.
Family members say Santoyo was not in a gang, and was supposed to start high school soon. A $500 reward is being offered for information leading to the killer of Santoyo.
Police have not officially said if the two drive-by’s are related.
No one is in custody in either shooting.
