A 17-year-old male and a 21-year-old male were shot Friday morning in the South Shore neighborhood after entering a ride-share vehicle, Chicago police said.

The two males had entered a ride-share vehicle in the 7600 block of South Bennett Avenue about 1:30 a.m. when a blue vehicle pulled up alongside it and an occupant fired shots at them.

The vehicle was possibly a Dodge Challenger, police said.

The ride-share driver took them to the residence of one of the victim’s relatives in the 8300 block of South Luella Avenue, where the Chicago Fire Department was called. The driver then went to South Chicago Avenue and Jeffrey Boulevard, where he flagged down police.

The victims were transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center by the Fire Department.

The 17-year-old suffered two gunshot wounds to the arm and the 21-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the torso region.

No one is in custody at this time, officials said.
