There was extra police activity in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood Monday as investigators looked into two separate shootings.

Chicago Police say a 23-year-old man was shot in the head and a 19-year-old man suffered a graze wound about 12:15pm Monday in the 4700 block of N Clarendon.

The 23-year-old was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital in critical condition.

About 7:20pm, another shooting occurred 4 blocks away in the 1000 block of W Wilson. An 18 year old man was shot in the upper buttocks, according to Chicago Police.

Shortly before 9pm, a small group of residents from the Uptown neighborhood staged an anti-violence march, walking West on Wilson toward the scene of the second shooting.

Some in the crowd shouted expletives at officers standing near the scene.

46th Ward Alderman James Cappleman, who was at the shooting scene Monday evening, tells WGN that while overall crime in down in this neighborhood, more needs to be done.

Cappleman says he will push for more foot patrols along Wilson by Chicago Police.

As of Monday night, no one is in custody for either shooting.
