    A teenage boy was hurt in a shooting along a Chicago Public Schools Safe Passage Route in the Woodlawn neighborhood Monday afternoon.

    The boy, 16, was shot in the arm about 2:30 p.m. in the 6200 block of South Cottage Grove Avenue, police said.

    He made it into University of Chicago Medical Center on his own, police said.

    That block is a Safe Passage Route leading to nearby John Fiske Elementary School, according to the CPS website.
