CHICAGO — Two teenagers are recovering after they were shot in separate incidents on the North Side, according to Chicago police.

The first shooting occurred around 9:41 p.m. Friday in the 6100 block of North Mozart in West Rogers Park. A 16-year-old boy was walking on the sidewalk when someone fired shots at him from a black sedan, police said in a short media statement. He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in good condition with a gunshot wound to his right leg.

Then, around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, a 17-year-old girl walked into Thorek Hospital, 850 West Irving Park Road, with two gunshot wounds to her upper right thigh. Police said the girl was “very uncooperative with officers and refused to answer any questions.” She is also in good condition, according to CPD.
