Three people, including a 12-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl, were wounded in a shooting Saturday afternoon near a back-to-school event in East Garfield Park.

Shortly before 3:30 p.m., they were standing outside a Citgo gas station, at 2959 W. Fulton St., when two people inside a passing vehicle fired shots, Chicago police said.

The shooting happened about a half hour after the scheduled end time of the back-to-school event. As police investigated, a deflated bounce-house and other items could be seen in the grass near the gas station and were blocked off by strands of yellow police tape.
