A teenager walked into a North Side hospital Thursday afternoon with a gunshot wound to the hand.

At 5:22 p.m., the 16-year-old walked into Weiss Memorial Hospital and told officials that he was shot in the 800 block of West Ainslie Street, according to preliminary information from Chicago Police.

He suffered a gunshot wound to the hand and was listed in good condition, police said.

A police source said the teenager, who is being uncooperative, is a documented gang member and the gunshot wound is most likelyself-inflicted.
