Three people were wounded in shootings on the Northwest and South sides in Chicago overnight, police said.

About 10:30 p.m. in the West Pullman neighborhood, a 20-year-old man was shot at a bus stop in the 11900 block of South Halsted Street, police said. Police said a gunman drew a pistol after a brief verbal exchange and fired, striking the man in the leg.

The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition was stabilized.

Fifteen minutes earlier in the Northwest Side's Cragin neighborhood, someone fired shots out of a dark sedan, striking a 33-year-old man in the back as he walked down the sidewalk, Police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.

After the shooting, which happened in the 2300 block of North Lamon Avenue, the man ran to a family member's home nearby and was driven to Our Lady of the Resurrection Hospital. He was transferred to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized.

About 8:30 p.m. in the Grand Crossing neighborhood, a 21-year-old man was shot in the back in the 1500 block of East 71st Place, Alfaro said.

A gunman opened fire during a conversation with the victim about buying a cell phone, News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said. The shooter robbed a friend of the victim of cash before fleeing on foot with an accomplice, Greer said.

The 21-year-old man's friend, who was not injured in the shooting, drove the victim to Jackson Park Hospital. He was transferred to Stroger Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.

No suspects were in custody in any of the shootings as of early Monday.
