16-year-old shot in West Englewood

A teenage boy who said he was shot in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side walked into a hospital Monday morning.

The 16-year-old’s friend dropped him off to Holy Cross Hospital at 11 a.m. with a gunshot wound to the armpit, police said.

He told investigators he heard gunshots and realized he’d been shot in the 7100 block of South Damen Avenue, police said.

A source said the boy was otherwise uncooperative, police said.
