A baby boy was hospitalized after someone shot the driver of a vehicle he was riding inside late Friday in the Fuller Park neighborhood on the South Side.

At 11:19 p.m., a 28-year-old man was driving west in the 200 block of West 43rd Place when a bullet struck his back, according to Chicago police. He crashed into a parked vehicle, causing a 1-year-old boy in the back of his vehicle to suffer abrasions to his face.

The 1-year-old was taken to Comer’s Children’s Hospital, and the 28-year-old wastaken to University of Chicago Medical Center, police said.

No one was in custody as Area Central detectives investigate.
