Four men were wounded in shootings Saturday afternoon on the South and West sides, including a man who accidentally shot himself in the leg, police said.

Most recently, a 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old man were shot in the South Austin neighborhood just before 7 p.m., police said. The men said they were in the 1100 block of North Lockwood Avenue when they heard shots and felt pain. Both got themselves to West Suburban Hospital. The 23-year-old was shot in the left leg, and the 24-year-old was shot in the right wrist and bicep.

In the Greater Grand Crossing area, a 21-year-old man suffered a graze wound to the left arm about 5:45 p.m. in the 7700 block of South Cottage Grove Avenue, according to a police media notification.

Just before 3:50 p.m., a 23-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the leg in the 5500 block of South Honore Street in the West Englewood neighborhood, and went to Stroger Hospital in good condition.
