CHICAGO — Two teens were shot on the Northwest Side Monday morning, including a 17-year-old who was shot in his head, police said.
The teen was with a 19-year-old woman in a parked car in the 4900 block of North Whipple Street about 2:20 a.m. when a man came up and shot them, said Officer John Mirabelli, a Chicago Police Department spokesman.
The teen, shot in his head and shoulders, was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition, Mirabelli said.
The woman, shot in her right forearm, is in stable condition at St. Francis Hospital, Mirabelli said.
No suspects are in custody, and no description of the suspect is available.
Police said Tuesday that the 17-year-old is a documented member of a local street gang, and detectives are looking into possible gang-related motives.
