About 11:50 p.m., he was standing on the sidewalk in the 3200 block of South Lituanica Avenue, when he heard shots and felt a pain, Chicago police said. He was struck on the right side of his buttocks and taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition.

A 16-year-old boy was shot in Wentworth Gardens on the South Side. About 11:20 p.m., he was standing outside in the 200 block of West Pershing Road, when he heard shots and felt a pain, police said. He was struck twice in his lower legs and once in his buttocks. The boy was brought to University of Chicago Medical Center in good condition. The circumstances of the shooting remain unknown because the boy was uncooperative with officers.
