A 15-year-old boy was shot to death Sunday in Wentworth Gardens on the South Side.

About 2:44 a.m., Devon Ward was standing in the courtyard of a building in the 3800 block of South Princeton Avenue when someone opened fire, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Ward was hit in the torso and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

No one is in custody and Area Central detectives are investigating.
