Teen killed, two wounded in North Lawndale drive-by

A 16-year-old boy was killed and two other people were wounded in a drive-by shooting late Tuesday in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side.

Marcus Weathers was standing on a front porch in the 1300 block of South Kostner with a 14-year-old girl and a 42-year-old woman about 11:40 p.m. when a white, four-door car drove by and someone inside fired shots at them, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Weathers, who lived on the same block, was shot in the back and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1 a.m., according to police and the medical examiner’s office.

The woman was shot in the right leg and the girl was shot in the back, Gaines said. Both were taken to Stroger, where their conditions were stabilized.
