A 17-year-old boy was shot and critically wounded Tuesday night in South Shore on the Far South Side.
The teen was walking down the street in the 7600 block of South Phillips Avenue when he was shot in the chest about 7:35 p.m., Chicago police said.
He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition, a Chicago Fire Department spokesperson said.
A basketball hoop could be seen in the middle of the alley at the scene.
No one was in custody.
Hours earlier, a 14-year-old student and a security guard were shot outside Wendell Phillips Academy High School in Bronzeville.
