A 16-year-old boy was shot in the head while walking into a Near West Side apartment building late Thursday.

One or more shooters opened fire on the teen from a vehicle going north in the 200 block of South Maplewood at 10:50 p.m., according to Chicago Police.

He was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, police said.

No one was in custody early Friday.
