CHICAGO — Three teenagers were among six people wounded in shootings across the city Friday, officials said.
About 7:30 p.m., three men were shot during a drive-by in Englewood, said Officer Jose Estrada, a police spokesman. The men had been standing in the 6900 block of South Harvard Avenue when someone in the back seat of a grey or silver car opened fire.
A 39-year-old man was struck in his left leg and taken to Stroger Hospital, Estrada said. Two men were treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital: a 25-year-old who was grazed in his face and an 18-year-old who was shot in his right thigh.
In Rogers Park, a 15-year-old boy was shot in his back and lower leg. He had been standing in an alley in the 7400 block of North Hoyne Avenue about 6:20 p.m. when he heard shots and felt pain, said Officer Hector Alfaro, police spokesman.
He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in stable condition, Alfaro said.
