13-Year-Old, Two Others Shot on West Side

Three victims expected to be OK

Two separate shootings late Thursday and early Friday on the West Side injured three people between the ages of 13 and 20, police said.

In one shooting, a 13-year-old boy was shot in the abdomen and right arm, and a 20-year-old man was shot in the upper right thigh while standing outside of a gas station on West Roosevelt Road in the Lawndale neighborhood, according to police spokesman Hector Alfaro.

Two people walked up to the victims outside the gas station, and began firing at about 11:20 p.m., Alfaro told the Chicago Tribune.

About 40 minutes later, at 12:10 a.m., a 17-year-old boy was shot in the chest and arm while standing on a sidewalk on North Laporte Avenue in the Austin Neighborhood.

Officials said the shots came from a light-colored sedan.

The three victims were all taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where they were listed in stable condition.

No one was in custody by Friday evening.
