17-Year-Old Shot In Leg On 900 Block Of Eastwood
According to CWB Chicago, witnesses say they saw "a suspected shooter run from the scene. He is described as black and wearing a white du-rag with a red shirt and black pants. Two witnesses said he ran northbound from the scene."
The victim was shot in the thigh, and taken to Illinois Masonic, where he is in stable condition.
Given the possibility that this was a gang-related shooting, please be extra vigilant and call 911 if you see anything that might look like gang retaliation about to happen.
Update: Readers reported hearing shots fired on Sunday night at this location as well. It's really important to call 911 if you happen upon something that looks like it's going to be trouble. Uptown gangs are known for their quick retaliation.
