Two men were shot while waiting in the drive-thru lane outside a McDonald’s restaurant early Thursday in the Southwest Side West Elsdon neighborhood.
The men, ages, 26 and 19, were in a vehicle in the drive-thru in the 5200 block of South Pulaski about 1:15 a.m. when a gunman walked up, started shooting and hit both of them, police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.
The shooter then left in a dark-colored SUV, Alfaro said. The victims drove to a convenience store parking lot near 59th and Pulaski, where they called police.
The 26-year-old suffered gunshot wounds to the right hand, right shoulder and neck, while the 19-year-old was shot in the right hip, Alfaro said. They were both taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where their conditions were stabilized.
A police source said the 26-year-old is a documented gang member.
