A 17-year-old boy was shot in his face Monday afternoon near the Bloomingdale Trail between the Logan Square and Humboldt Park neighborhoods on the Northwest Side.
The teen was standing on the front porch of a home about 12:30 p.m. in the 1800 block of North Drake Avenue when he heard gunfire and was shot in his nose, Chicago police said.
Unconfirmed radio traffic indicated the shooter or shooters were on the Bloomingdale Trail. Police said five shell casings were recovered.
Paramedics took the boy to Mt. Sinai Hospital in serious condition, police said. A fire department official said his condition was stabilized.
Police said the boy did not see where the shots came from. No arrests have been made.
