Two more Chicago teenagers are recovering from gunfire. A 16-year-old boy and 18-year-old man were shot near 65th Place and Kedzie Monday night. The 16-year-old was hit in the back. He is in serious condition. The 18-year-old was hit in the hand and is expected to be OK.

Police have one person in custody but charges have not been filed.

The shooting sent people scrambling for cover.

"This is not the thing we want to see. The kids are shooting against each other, for what reason I don't know. It's kind of scarring to myself, seeing this before my face. I've never seen anything like this. I've been in the military, and I've never seen anything like this in my life," said Eric Satterwhite, local resident.

Police say the shooting appears to be gang related.
