1 Dead, 1 Wounded After Lawndale Shooting

A teenage boy is dead and another in critical condition after a shooting early Saturday in the Lawndale neighborhood, police said.

The 17-year-old boys were shot around 2:15 a.m. in the 1500 block of South Millard Avenue, according to police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

Police said a large crowd surrounded the two boys when they arrived at the scene, said Mirabelli. Both boys were unresponsive, he said.

One was shot in the lower back and later died, Mirabelli said. Cook County Medical Examiner's office identified him as Jeffrey Triplett.

The other boy was shot several times and taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Both teenagers were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital.

No one is in custody at this time and Area Central Detectives are investigating.
