Two teens were shot near a South Side school shortly after classes were dismissed Thursday afternoon, police said.
Anthony Carter, 18, was shot in the leg while the 15-year-old suffered a graze wound. Both were taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition, authorities said.
Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman Monique Bond said the teens were not CPS students.
A woman who lives across the street from the school described the block as a "war zone." Ingrid Rice said the shooting is ".. a waste. A waste of innocent young life. It's frustrating."
No one is in custody.
Classes at Chicago Public Schools just began on Tuesday, but already there's been a spate of violence.
At about 2:45 p.m. Wednesday, two Bowen High School students were shot, one fatally, just blocks away from the South Side neighborhood school.
At about the same time, a school teacher at Pickard Elementary School, in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood, was stabbed in the shoulder while attempting to break up a fight.
Less than four hours later, two teens were shot in an apparent gang-related drive-by in Chicago's Belmont Cragin neighborhood on the city's Northwest Side.
