A 14-year-old boy was killed and nine other people were wounded — including five other teenagers — in a pair of nearby shootings just 10 minutes apart in Chicago on Wednesday night, a report said.
Five of the victims, including the teen who died, were hit in the first shooting at about 6 p.m. in the city’s North Lawndale neighborhood, NBC Chicago reported.
The other victims in the initial shooting included a 16-year-old boy, who was shot in the head, and three men, two of whom are 24 and a 22-year-old, the report said.
The 16-year-old was hospitalized in critical condition and the three men were listed in stable condition.
Three blocks away, multiple gunmen opened fire about 10 minutes later, striking four teenage boys and a 22-year-old man.
The teenage victims in the second shooting ranged in age from 14 to 18.
The 18-year-old was taken to hospital in critical condition and the other four victims were listed in stable condition.
No arrests were immediately made.
