A 16-year-old girl was shot Monday night in the South Side Princeton Park neighborhood.

The girl got off a bus and was walking home about 9:15 p.m. in the 9400 block of South Yale when she heard shots and started running, Chicago Police said.

When she arrived home, the girl realized she was shot in the foot, police said.

Paramedics took the girl to University of Chicago Medical Center, where her condition stabilized, police said.

Police had originally reported that an 18-year-old woman had been shot in West Chatham, then issued a correction that a 16-year-old girl was shot in Gresham, before updating with the most recent location.
