CHICAGO — At least three people were wounded in a Bronzeville shooting Friday night, police said.

The shooting took place about 6:50 p.m. Friday in the 700 block of East 50th Street, according to the Chicago Police Department.

A 21-year-old man was shot in his head. He was taken in critical condition to the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Two 17-year-old boys were shot in their ankles. Both victims were taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where their conditions had stabilized.

No one was in custody.

Detectives are investigating.

Six miles away at St. Sabina Church, the Rev. Michael Pfleger held his annual Summer of Peace Block Party. With food, music and giveaways, the party offered South Siders a safe haven to bring their children.

"I have zero tolerance for shooting and killing," Pfleger said. "If you do that around here, we're going to catch you because we can't have our people living in fear."
