A teenager was shot and critically wounded Thursday afternoon in the South Side Burnside neighborhood.

About 4:45 p.m., the 19-year-old man was standing in the 9200 block of South Dobson when another male walked up and fired shots before driving off in an SUV, according to Chicago Police.

The victim was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in critical condition with gunshot wounds to his leg and neck, police said.

Four people were initially taken into custody in connection with the shooting, police said. By Sunday morning, all four suspects had been released without charges.
