    Two men were shot early Monday in what Chicago police believe stemmed from a road rage incident.

    The men, ages 23 and 33, were passengers in a car driven by a 21-year-old woman that became involved in an altercation with another motorist, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    Police said one of the cars began cutting off the other on West Fullerton Avenue. The driver of the second car pulled alongside the victims' vehicle, raised a handgun and opened fire several times, police said.

    The younger man was struck twice in the rear shoulder and the other was shot once in each hand.

    The female driver, who was not injured, called authorities before driving her passengers to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park. The younger man was later transferred to Stroger Hospital.

    As of Monday morning, the 23-year-old was in critical condition and the 33-year-old was in stable condition, according to the Tribune. Although both victims are admitted gang members, police have not determined if that was a factor in the shooting.

    The shooter, seen fleeing west on Fullerton, was in a beige or brown sedan, police said.

    The investigation is still open, with no charges filed.
