Two people were wounded, including an Uber driver, in a shooting on the Northwest Side Saturday, the Chicago Fire Department said.

Police said two gunmen were firing shots at a documented gang member in the 2200-block of North Latrobe Avenue at about 3:15 a.m. Then, an Uber driver nearby felt pain in his leg after he dropped off a passenger, the Chicago Fire Department said.

The 37-year-old driver was wounded in the leg and hospitalized in stable condition. The victim told the Chicago Fire Department that he is an Uber driver. Uber has not been able to confirm that the victim drives for Uber.

The other victim, a 24-year-old man, was also hospitalized in stable condition.
