Three men and a 17-year-old boy were taken to hospitals following three separate shootings on the South Side this morning and afternoon.

Mosty recently, someone shot a 17 year old boy in the city’s Wrightwood neighborhood on the Southwest Side about 2:10 p.m., Chicago Fire Department authorities said.

The teen had been shot in the 8200 block of South Kedzie Avenue and he was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in serious to critical condition, the fire department said.

In another attack, someone shot two men about 12:40 p.m. in the 2000 block of West 79th Street in the city’s Gresham neighborhood, according to police.

Officers responded to a shots fired call and found a 22-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds and a 25-year-old man shot in the arm and leg, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic.

Fire department authorities said both men were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, one in serious-to-critical condition and the other in fair-to-serious condition.

Earlier, in the West Englewood neighborhood during a gang-related attack, a 20-year-old man was shot, Sedevic said.

The victim was on the sidewalk in the 5500 block of South Hoyne Avenue when an unknown assailant in a dark-colored car fired shots in his direction and he was hit in the lower right leg, Sedevic said.

The victim was taken by paramedics to Holy Cross Hospital in good condition, according to fire department authorities.

The Hoyne shooting “appears to be gang-related,” Sedevic said, adding no one has been arrested.

Area South detectives are investigating but the victim is not cooperating with them, according to the officer.
