CHICAGO — After a teen was fatally shot and two others wounded outside a West Side party Saturday night, an ambulance collided with a squad car as it rushed to the scene.

Around 10 p.m. Saturday, neighbors say a group of men walked up to a some teens hanging outside a party on the 3400 block of West Flournoy when shots rang out.

A 16-year-old boy was hit in the legs, a 17-year-old girl was hit as well and 16-year-old Frank Looney was struck in the head and chest, later dying from his injuries.
