CHICAGO — A 15-year-old boy was shot multiple times while walking to school on the Far South Side.
The shooting happened Wednesday morning around 8:30 a.m. on 90th Street and Brandon Avenue in the South Chicago neighborhood. Police said the teen was walking to school when he was shot.
He was transported to Comer Children’s Hospital in critical condition.
No motive for the shooting has been released, and no arrests have been made.
“Any time we have violence within our city streets it’s horrific, the Chicago Police Department is in tune with keeping our children safe on the streets so this one hits personally hard,” police Capt. Terry McMahon said.
Area Central detectives are investigating. The location where the shooting occurred is an area police in the 4th District don’t associate with gang violence.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
