Evanston Police Release Surveillance Video of Alleged Gunmen

Evanston police are asking the public for help as they try to identify two men who allegedly shot a 17-year-old boy last week in an attack that was caught on surveillance cameras.

The teen was shot around 5:15 p.m. Aug. 10 in the 1800 block of Hartrey Avenue, police said. He was treated and released from an area hospital, according to police Cmdr. Jay Parrot.
