A teenage boy was killed after being shot eight times Thursday in Rogers Park on the North Side.

Quintin Brown, 17, was standing on the sidewalk with at least two others about 2:15 p.m. when someone walked up and fired at him in the 6900 block of North Glenwood Avenue, within the block of the Morse Avenue Red Line station, according to Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Brown was shot eight times, authorities said. He was struck once in the face, four times in the abdomen, twice in one leg and once in the other. He was taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said. He lived in West Rogers Park.

The shooter was on foot and wearing a blue shirt, according to police. No arrests have been reported.

Earlier in the day, a 33-year-old man was shot while struggling with a robber in the 2800 block of West Devon Avenue in West Rogers Park, authorities said. He was hit in the hand about 9:10 a.m. and treated at St. Francis Hospital.

In a separate shooting on Tuesday, two teenagers were wounded in the 7300 block of North Rogers Avenue, police said. They both survived.

Ald. Maria Hadden (49th), whose ward covers the scene of the shooting, said in a statement, “the loss of life and gun violence we’ve experienced this week have been difficult and scary.”

Hadden said she was scheduling a community meeting within the next two weeks to address safety issues in the neighborhood.

“I don’t have many updates to share here yet, but want to make sure folks know I’m paying attention,” Hadden said. “I’m glad no one else was wounded and please check in on your neighbors.”
