At least two people have been wounded in shootings in Chicago since mid-afternoon Monday, according to police.

In the North Lawndale area, a 15-year-old boy suffered a graze wound to the leg in the 4300 block of West Ogden Avenue about 5:35 p.m., according to a police media notification.

The boy was on the street when a dark-colored sedan pulled up and someone inside fired shots, grazing him, before the car drove off. The boy went in a private vehicle to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was in good condition. No one was in custody.

A man was in critical condition following an earlier shooting in the Gresham neighborhood.
