Double-Shooting In Uptown Friday Night

Two men were shot in Uptown Friday night—the fourth shooting incident to claim multiple victims in that neighborhood since November 1.

The men, both 20, were walking in the 800 block of West Windsor around 10:50 p.m. when a masked man emerged from a white vehicle and opened fire, witnesses said.

The shooter got back into the car and headed east.

Seven shell casings were found at the scene.

Both victims were reported in good condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. One was shot in his upper left thigh, the other in the right shin.

Neither of the victims has an adult arrest record in Chicago, according to police files. The men are graduates of Lane Tech and Uplift high schools.
