    Two teenagers were in critical condition Friday morning after bullets flew inside a home and struck them as they stood in the kitchen, according to Chicago police.

    Authorities said the shooting took place at around 3:05 a.m. in the 8700 block of South Princeton Avenue in the city's West Chatham neighborhood.

    Shots were fired outside a home and came in through a window, officials said, striking the two 17-year-olds, a boy and a girl, who were in the kitchen.

    Both were shot in the chest, officials said, once for the boy and multiple times for the girl. Both were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical condition, according to police.
