A teenage boy was wounded Wednesday evening in a Far South Side Roseland neighborhood shooting.

The 17-year-old was standing in the alley at 5:36 p.m. in the 200 block of East 115th Street when two males in hoodies started shooting at him, according to Chicago Police. He started to run away when he felt pain in his right leg.

He was taken via ambulance to University of Chicago Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized, police said.

The rear bumper of a nearby vehicle was also struck by gunfire, but the 27-year-old woman who was sitting inside was not hurt, police said.
