Three teenage boys and a man were hurt in a shooting Monday afternoon in the Near North Side.

They were on the street about 3:30 p.m. when four people got out of a vehicle with guns and opened fire in the 1300 block of North Hudson Avenue, Chicago police said. The suspects then got back inside the vehicle and fled the scene, according to police.

Two boys, 16, were shot in the leg and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in fair condition, police said. A 14-year-old struck in the foot and transported in good condition to Laurie Children’s Hospital.

The man, 63, suffered a gunshot wound to the buttocks and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was stabilized, police said.

Crime tape blocked off a portion of Hudson with officiers concentrated around an entrance to the Marshall Fields Garden apartments.

No one is in custody as Area Three detectives investigate.
