CHICAGO — A 14-year-old boy was shot in the neck Friday evening, but sources say the circumstances of the shooting is unclear.
Authorities were told that he was walking in the 1900 block of East 95th Street in South Deering with another boy, when he heard gunshots about 6:35 p.m. and ran to his home where he discovered he was shot in the neck.
While the boy was taken to Comer Children's Hospital where he was "stabilized," police combed the sidewalk and found no evidence of a shooting. There were no calls made to 911 in the area of shots fired at the time of the alleged incident.
The boy has no known gang affiliations, police said.
The boy was one of at least two people shot since Friday evening.
In a separate shooting, a person was shot about 4:15 a.m. Saturday in the 500 block of West Grand Avenue in West Town.
A 29-year-old man was driving eastbound with two friends when shots were fired from another car, police said.
The driver was shot four times: twice in his arm, once in his chest and once in his abdomen.
He drove and parked the car in the 1300 block of West Lake Street, after which an acquaintance dropped him off at Rush University Medical Center.
Paramedics transferred him to Stroger Hospital where he is now in good condition.
No description of the suspects or their car is available and the victim does have known gang affiliations.
