A teenager was shot and wounded as he stepped out of a vehicle early Sunday in the Homan Square neighborhood on the West Side.

The 17-year-old boy was approached by three people about 2 a.m. in the 3700 block of West Arthington Street, Chicago police said. One of them pulled out a gun and opened fire.

The teen was hit in his arm and leg and was driven by a friend to West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park, where his condition had stabilized, police said.

Area North detectives were investigating the shooting.

Police initially said the shooting happened in 5800 block of West Harrison Street in the Austin neighborhood.
