Man, two boys shot in Chatham

One man and two teenagers were shot in the Chatham neighborhood Sunday night on the South Side.

A 22-year-old man and two 17-year-old boys were standing on the sidewalk in the 8300 block of South Maryland about 11:55 p.m. when they heard gunshots and felt pain, police said.

The 22-year-old man suffered gunshot wounds to the neck and upper back and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition was stabilized, police said.

One of the 17-year-old boys suffered a gunshot wound to the right calf, the other a wound to the left thigh. Both teenagers were taken to Stroger Hospital where their conditions were stabilized, police said.

The man and the two teenagers are known gang members, police said.

Less than 24 hours earlier, one teenager was killed and another was injured in a separate shooting two blocks away.

The boys, ages 16 and 17, were standing on the sidewalk in the 8200 block of South Ingleside when someone walked up and fired shots at them, according to Chicago Police.

The younger boy suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and was taken to Christ Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 2:05 a.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. His name was withheld Sunday pending family notification.

The older boy was shot in the leg and also taken to Christ Medical Center, where his condition stabilized. A police source said the 17-year-old is a known gang member.
