2 teens injured in South Shore shooting

Two teenagers were shot and injured in the South Shore neighborhood.

Chicago Police say the 14 and 16-year-old boys were walking in the 1600 block of East 69th Street just after 9:30 p.m. Monday when they heard gun shots and realized they’d been hit.   The gunman shot them from behind and then ran off.

The 14-year-old was shot in the back and is in critical condition.

The other boy was hit in the thigh.  He is listed as stable.

Both were taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in Hyde Park.

Police are looking for the gunman.

    I saw this story this morning and once again I am wondering why are these kids out so late on a school night? Their pastor said it doesn't what time they were out because no one deserves to be shot at BUT HONESTLY some parts of the south side are rough . If you live in bad area why would you risk your life hanging out in the streets late at night when you should be home doing homework or even going to bed. Like I said I get that people should be able to walk the streets safe but until it is give these kids a curfew. maybe i'm just old school about this

      FYI-weeknight curfew for this age group(14-16) is 10pm & 11pm on weekends. The question/issue isn't really WHY the kids are out, but WHY people are going around shooting & gunning people down? It could have easily been someone coming home from a late night at the office or a workout or dinner or God-forbid any other activity. Are you seriously going to question why they are out "LATE"? Geeezzz…Way to go with that "blaming the victim" mentality!

    Lack of education no moral or social values . you live in bad area but you let your kids roam the streets at night real smart.
