A 3-year-old boy was one of seven people shot Friday evening in the South Side Englewood neighborhood.

Most of the group was on a sidewalk about 8 p.m. when shots rang out in the 1600 block of West 65th Street, according to Chicago police.

The boy was shot in the left shin and taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, where his condition stabilized.

A 30-year-old man who was shot in the back showed up at Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was in serious condition, police said.

Paramedics took two other men, ages 27 and 30, to University of Chicago Medical Center and St. Bernard Hospital, respectively. The younger man was shot in the torso and the older man was shot in the left leg. Their conditions stabilized.

Two more men, ages 26 and 29, showed up at St. Bernard Hospital, where their conditions stabilized. The older man was shot in the left calf, and the younger man in the left hand and leg.

A seventh person, a 38-year-old woman, was standing in a nearby backyard when a stray bullet grazed her in the left arm, police said. She was treated on the scene and released.

More details weren’t immediately available.
