A 14-year-old boy has been charged in connection with a shooting that left three teenage boys, including himself, and a man wounded Monday afternoon on the Near North Side.

The teen is charged with one felony count of aggravated discharge of a firearm, Chicago police said.

They were on the street about 3:30 p.m. when four people got out of a vehicle with guns and opened fire in the 1300 block of North Hudson Avenue, Chicago police said. The suspects then got back inside the vehicle and fled the scene, according to police.

Two boys, 16, were shot in the leg and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in fair condition, police said.

The 14-year-old was struck in the foot and transported in good condition to Lurie Children’s Hospital, police said. He was taken into custody.

The man, 63, suffered a gunshot wound to the buttocks and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was stabilized, police said.

At the scene, over 20 shell casings were scattered across the street and sidewalk. Crime tape blocked off a portion of Hudson Avenue with officers concentrated around an entrance to the Marshall Fields Garden apartments.

“It’s crazy out here,” one woman said as she walked by the street.

She’d lived in the city for over 20 years but said she was ready to leave now.
