A 19-year-old man was in a business on the 10000 block of Mack at about 4:45 p.m. Friday when "words were exchanged" with another person who pulled out a weapon and shot him, police said.

A 46-year-old bystander also was hit before the suspect fled with an armed second suspect.

Both victims were hospitalized in stable condition after the incident.
