    There's another call to end gun violence after shootings take the lives of a man outside a gas station and a teen in a bedroom. NBC Chicago's Lauren Petty filed this report at 5 a.m. on July 24, 2014. (Published Thursday, July 24, 2014)

    Three people -- including two 16-year-old boys -- were in critical condition Wednesday night after being shot in Chicago's south side Fuller Park neighborhood.

    The shooting happened about 9 p.m. in the 4200 block of South Priceton Avenue after a male exited an SUV and opened fire, striking all three, said police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro. One man, 21, suffered a gunshot wound to the foot and left thigh. He was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

    A 16-year-old boy was shot in the right armpit and was also taken to Stroger, Alfaro said. A second 16-year-old boy suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, Alfaro said.

    No one was in custody as of 5 a.m. Thursday.
