A 16-year-old boy was killed and another wounded when someone fired into a home Wednesday afternoon in Englewood on the South Side.

The shots were fired from a car that pulled up to the home in the 6000 block of South Carpenter Street about 4 p.m., Chicago police said.

Cordell Bass was struck in the chest and brought to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

The other teen was struck in the right leg and taken to the hospital, where he was stabilized, police said.

No one was in custody.
