A 16-year-old boy was injured in a Thursday evening shooting in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood.

The shooting happened at about 8:30 p.m. near North Clark Street and West Lunt Avenue. Officials said the teen was shot in the buttocks.

Hours earlier in the day, and just a few blocks away, a 23-year-old man was wounded when he was shot in the leg near North Clark Street and West North Shore Avenue.

He was taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston in good condition.

Thursday evening's shooting came as police and residents were attending a CAPS meeting to discuss another shooting that injured three teens on Monday night.

In that incident, a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old were taken to Children's Memorial Hospital. A 19-year-old was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston with a bullet graze wound to the arm.

There's no immediate word if any of the incidents are related.
