The teenager was in the 1300 block of South Kedzie about 8 a.m. when a vehicle drove by and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police.

He was shot in the thigh and taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.

Police said the vehicle was possibly a white van, which took off after the shooting.
