Teen Wounded In West Garfield Park Shooting
CHICAGO (STMW) – A teen was wounded in a West Garfield Park shooting early Sunday on the city’s West Side.
A 17-year-old boy was standing on the sidewalk near East Congress Parkway and South Kostner Avenue about 3:50 a.m. when he “heard shots and felt pain,” according to police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro.
A family member drove the boy to Loretto Hospital, where he was in “stable” condition with a gunshot wound to his right calf, Alfaro said.
Nobody was in custody Sunday morning as Area Central detectives investigated.
