Teen hit in face among 3 shot in Chatham
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.”
