Police: Boy, 16, Killed In Humboldt Park Shooting

CHICAGO (STMW) — A teen died after he was shot multiple times in the West Side Humboldt Park neighborhood late Saturday, police said.

The shooting happened about 11:45 p.m. in the 4100 block of West North Avenue, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

The boy, 16, was walking through an alley when a gunman rode up on a bicycle and opened fire, Greer said. The teen was struck in the arm and back, and collapsed down the block from where he was shot.
