A 17-year-old boy was shot Sunday night during an attempted robbery by two people in the South Side’s Park Manor neighborhood.

About 11:25 p.m., the boy was entering a store when he was approached by two males in the 7100 block of South State Street, Chicago Police said.

The two males shot the boy in the neck while they tried to rob him, police said. They drove off in a white Mazda but crashed the vehicle in the same block.
