Chicago Sun-Times - - TOP NEWS - Em­manuel Ca­mar­illo and Tyler Lariv­iere

A 14-year-old boy was among three peo­ple wounded in a shoot­ing Fri­day in Chatham on the South Side.

They were on the side­walk about 5:30 p.m. in the 8200 block of South Drexel Avenue when a ve­hi­cle drove up and some­one in­side opened fire, Chicago po­lice said.

The teen was struck in the face and taken to Comer Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal, po­lice said.

A 21-year-old man was struck in the arm, and a woman, 27, was shot in the but­tocks, po­lice said. They were taken to the Univer­sity of Chicago Med­i­cal Cen­ter.

Chicago fire of­fi­cials said the trio was in se­ri­ous-to-crit­i­cal con­di­tion but sta­bi­lized at the hos­pi­tal.

“I’m used to hear­ing so many shots go­ing on I didn’t take no lis­ten,” said Shel­ton, who did not want to pro­vide his last name.

“It’s ridicu­lous. Any­body could have walked out this build­ing and got shot. It’s just sense­less. They need to wake up.”
