CHICAGO -- Charges have been filed against the 16-year-old girl who crashed a stolen car into a Chicago Public Library late Tuesday night.

Just prior to that crash, police say her 14-year-old passenger was shot and the car they were riding in, was stolen.

Police say the 14-year-old was shot when someone in a black sedan opened fire at 60th and Whipple around 11 p.m. Tuesday.

The car then crashed into the library at 61st and Kedzie in the city's Chicago Lawn neighborhood.

The 14-year-old boy was transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with a gunshot wound to the chest. Police say he is a documented gang member.

City officials hope to have the library back open by 9 a.m. Friday.
