In a separate shooting incident about 30 minutes later in Englewood, a Shell gas station worker called 911 near the 6600 block of South Wentworth Avenue when he saw an 18 year old gunshot victim pull up on his bike with a bloody wound to his side, shouting "call 911."
That man was rushed to Saint Bernard Hospital and Health Care Center, authorities have reported.
