A 17-year-old has been charged with aggravated battery, accused of shooting a 19-year-old man in the back and a leg Wednesday in Austin.
The accused’s name wasn’t released because he is a minor.
The shooting happened around 6 p.m. Wednesday in the 5700 block of West Augusta Street. The police said the shooter got out of a vehicle, shot the man, then drove off.
The wounded man was treated at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood.
His father was working on a car in a nearby garage when someone ran in and shouted: “Your son has been shot!”
