Geanni Boyd, 16, and another teen were shot Wednesday evening in the Washington Park neighborhood.
Boyd and a 15-year-old boy were sitting on the front porch of a home in the 5100 block of South Calumet Avenue when a bicyclist riding past them opened fire about 7:45 p.m., said Officer Hector Alfaro, a police spokesman.
