Chicago police are investigating a weekend shooting in Uptown in which two men were shot outside a pizzeria.

Here is a portion of the story from the Chicago Tribune:

A group of people were involved in an argument inside a pizza restaurant in Uptown, located just south of West Lawrence Avenue on North Sheridan Road, police said.

The group moved outside, and gunshots rang out feet from the restaurant’s door, police said.

The one attacker, a man or boy whom the victims did not describe in detail to investigators, approached on foot outside and fired several times, hitting an 18-year-old man and a 20-year-old man, police said. The younger man was shot in the left foot and taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital, and the older man was shot in the left leg and taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

Police said both their conditions were stabilized, but further details of their conditions were not available.
