    A 21-year-old man playing video games with his brother in a bedroom of their Humboldt Park apartment early Saturday was seriously wounded when he was struck by bullets that came through a window of the home.

    The 21-year-old victim was in a bedroom of the apartment in the 3800 block of West Augusta Boulevard about 3:40 a.m. playing video games with a brother when they heard gunshots, police said.
