5 teens shot in Englewood drive-by shooting
Five teens were wounded in a drive-by shooting in the city’s Englewood neighborhood Monday night.
The teenagers — all between the ages of 16 and 17 years-old — were standing in a group on the sidewalk in the 5700 block of South Green Street about 9:40 p.m. when a green minivan pulled alongside them and someone inside opened fire, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a Chicago Police spokesman.
A 17-year-old girl was shot in her chest and was taken to John H. Stroger Hospital. Another 17-year-old girl was grazed by a bullet on her abdomen, and a 16-year-old girl was shot in her left foot, Alfaro said. Both girls were also taken to Stroger Hospital.
A 16-year-old boy was shot in his right leg and right hand, and another 16-year-old boy was shot in his right leg. Both boys were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital.
Police did not provide conditions of the five teenagers but instead said each person’s condition had been stabilized.
No one was in custody in connection with the shooting as of early Tuesday morning.
