Police said the men shot were visiting the site where a friend had died on an undentified date. Details on the death were not immediately available.
In an apparently unrelated shooting that happened nearby about 5 a.m. Sunday at 310 S. Springfield Ave., four other people were shot during an outdoor party — a 30-year-old woman, a 16-year-old boy, a 30-year-old man and an 18-year-old man.
