A 16-year-old boy was shot Saturday night in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side.

The boy was standing on the sidewalk with another male about 8 p.m. in the 1200 block of South Independence when a third male walked up and opened fire, police said.

The boy was shot in the chin and walked into Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition stabilized, police said.
