A 14-year-old boy was shot in the foot Thursday morning in Lawndale on the West Side.

Two gunmen in their 20s exited a gray car and one of them opened fire about 7:50 a.m. in the 3900 block of West Fillmore Street, near Pulaski Road, according to Chicago police.

The boy was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition, police said. The gunmen left in the car and were not in custody.
