A teenager was shot and critically wounded early Wednesday in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

The 17-year-old was walking south at 12:40 a.m. in the 6000 block of South Throop when shots rang out and he realized he’d suffered a gunshot wound to the right leg, according to Chicago Police.

He was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital, police said.
