CHICAGO (STMW) — A drive-by shooting that seriously wounded a 17-year-old boy in the South Side Auburn Gresham neighborhood Friday afternoon may have been gang-related.

The boy was in the 2100 block of West 85th Street just before 2 p.m. when a shooter walked up and opened fire, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

He was shot in the arm and torso, and the shooter ran away, Greer said.

Paramedics took the teen to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in serious to critical condition, according to Fire Media Affairs.

He remains in serious condition early Saturday, Greer said.

Area South detectives have not made any arrests as of early Saturday, but authorities think the shooting may be gang-related.
