(STMW) – A 16-year-old boy has died after being shot Friday inside a Grand Boulevard restaurant on the South Side.

About 12:20 a.m. Friday, two males entered and opened fire inside Alice’s Bar-B-Que, 65 E. 43rd St., police said. Kajaunce Morton, 16, was inside at the time and tried to run away but was shot in the head, according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Morton, of the 600 block of East 37th Street, was taken in critical condition to Comer Children’s Hospital, and was pronounced dead there Saturday at 7:10 p.m., authorities said.

Another 16-year-old was shot about ten minutes later in the same neighborhood, a mile away from the first shooting.

The teen was in an alley in the 400 block of East 45th Place when he was shot in the buttocks, police said. He was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in “stable” condition, police said.

Police could not confirm whether the two shootings were related Sunday morning.
