CHICAGO (CBS) -- Three young teenagers were wounded Monday afternoon in a shooting in the Lawndale community.

Both 13-year-olds were shot in the left hand and were taken to Stroger Hospital of Cook County in good condition.

The 14-year-old was shot in the left arm and was taken to the same hospital in good condition.
