CHICAGO — A 16-year-old boy was among two people injured in overnight violence.
About 12:45 a.m. Friday, a 20-year-old man was brought into Our Lady of Resurrection Medical Center with serious injuries, said Officer Amina Greer, a Chicago Police Department spokeswoman.
The victim said he was standing with friends in the 2600 block of North Leclaire Avenue in Belmont Cragin when several men jumped out of a car. The men stabbed and beat the victim, who police said has gang ties.
The victim suffered stab wounds in his eye, back and arm, and was struck in his head with a baseball bat. He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center after the attack.
Earlier in the evening, a 16-year-old boy was shot in his legs in Rogers Park, Greer said.
