2 Teen Boys Shot On Far South Side

CHICAGO (STMW) — Two teen boys were shot on the Far South Side early Thursday.

The shooting happened at 2:15 a.m. in an alley in the 10800 block of South Green Street, according to police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer.

The victims were walking down the street when suspects pulled up in a dark colored vehicle and fired shots, hitting both teens before fleeing southbound in the vehicle, according to a police News Affairs release.

One of the victims was a 16-year-old boy who suffered gunshot wounds to the shoulder and mouth and he is in critical condition, according to a police News Affairs release. The other victim is 17 and he was listed in stable condition, after being shot in the leg, the release said.

Greer said the victims were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn for treatment.

The suspects were not in custody as of 6 a.m.

    Sad story, especially so close to the holidays. Question though, why the hell are 2 teenagers out at 2:15AM and where are their parents? Can’t blame the white man for this one.

    What the heck were they doing out at this time anyways……sometimes when we’re not looking for trouble it tends to find us especiially if we’re someone we’re not suppose to be.

    Business as usual in the Africian American Community. Sure, send Burge up the river while the Black Man rapes, robs, and kills his neighor.

    The rest of civilized people in t his country are in jepordy of loosing their right to own weapons beacuse of young, black, brutal thugs.

    so ignorant, yet so naive last time I checked their were all colors in jail for the same crimes I dont remember blacks being the only RAPIST, KILLERS, THEIVES in the world or locked up i could have sworn I saw all colors on the inmate site….but when we get doen sterotyping the question still remain why were these children out this time of night? But i am sure Jim will probably figure out a way to bash the BLACK PARENTS for it
