A 17-year-old boy was shot Sunday evening in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

The teenager was walking in the 1600 block of West 72nd Street about 5:00 p.m. when he heard shots ring out and felt pain, said police News Affairs Officer Thomas Sweeney.

He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition had stabilized, Sweeney said.
