Two boys, ages 14 and 16, injured in Chicago

Two boys, ages 14 and 16, were injured in two separate shooting incidents in Chicago. 

From an article:
The 14-year-old boy was standing on the sidewalk in the 12400 block of South Perry at 8:34 p.m. Friday when a gunman walked out from between two houses and opened fire, police said.
The boy was shot in the back and leg and was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in “stable” condition, police said.
Two other teens — ages 16 and 18 — were in good condition after a shooting at 11:10 p.m. in the 700 block of West 51st Street, police said. The younger teen was shot in the hand and taken to St. Bernard Hospital and Health Care Centers, while the older teen was shot in the leg.

No one is in custody for either shooting.
