The attack occurred about 7 a.m. on the 100 block of South River Road (Route 25), one block south of Butterfield Road, police said.

A 22-year-old man was shot in the arm. The second victim, 23, was shot in the chest, police said. Both were conscious and able to exit the building under their own power. They were taken by ambulance to Provena Mercy Medical Center in Aurora. Their conditions are not known.

Deputy Chief Scott Buziecki said police briefly interviewed the two victims and are still investigating a motive.

"We don't know what, if anything, was taken," Buziecki said.

The suspects were armed with at least one weapon, described as a stainless steel semiautomatic handgun.

The men lived in one of four second-floor apartments at a brick building on South River Street.

In an email alert, North Aurora police said, "There is no reason to believe that (the gunmen) are still in the area at this time," but people with information about the attack should call (630) 897-8705, ext. 610. Anonymous tips can be left at the same number by choosing option No. 3.
