A 17-year-old girl was seriously wounded in a shooting early Friday in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.

She was standing in the kitchen of a home with a 17-year-old boy about 2:10 a.m. in the 8700 block of South Princeton when shots were fired from outside and bullets game through the window, according to Chicago police.

The girl was shot in the left shoulder and lower back, police said. She was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where she was listed in serious condition.

Police initially reported that the boy had also been shot in the chest, but further investigation revealed that he had actually suffered cuts to the chest from shattered window glass. He was also taken to Christ Medical Center and was listed in good condition.

Area South detectives were investigating the shooting.
