CHICAGO — Six people have been shot in Chicago since Monday morning, including a 15-year-old boy, police said.

One of the shootings involved a home invasion and attempted robbery.

At 2:28 a.m. Tuesday, a 19-year-old man was shot in the 1400 block of South Central Park Avenue. In that incident, two armed attackers knocked on the door and said they would rob the place after the victim's uncle answered the door.

The victim heard the commotion and shut the door to his bedroom. The two attackers tried to get into the bedroom, and one of them shot through the door before running from the home.
