CHICAGO — A man shot two teens Monday morning on the West Side during an attempted robbery.
Just after 5:50 a.m., police said a 56-year-old man was in his vehicle when another vehicle, with three teens around 15 to 18 years old inside, approached.

According to police, a struggle ensued before the man, a valid CCL and FOID holder, fired several rounds.
The teens’ vehicle attempted to flee, but crashed nearby. The driver suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was transported to Mt. Sinai in critical condition.
A second teen believed to be in the vehicle was located several blocks away with a gunshot wound to the shoulder, police said. The third teen involved suffered a broken leg in the crash.
