CHICAGO — An 18-year-old student at a Chicago high school was shot while he was at the beach with his friends on Wednesday.
The student, a senior at Simeon Career Academy, and his friends took the day off school to spend time at 31st Street Beach. Police said the teen was walking to the parking lot from the beach around 2:40 p.m. when someone in a gray Nissan Altima pulled up, got out of the car, approached the teen and fired shots.
Police said the teen was shot in his left thigh and left foot. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he was stabilized.
No one was taken into custody, but police said it was a targeted attack.
The teen is set to graduate next week.
The investigation is ongoing.
