A teen was shot while riding a school bus after a Chicago Public Schools basketball game in the South Side Englewood neighborhood Monday evening, police said.

The bus, which was transporting a basketball team following the game, was near West 62nd Street and South Stewart Avenue about 7:53 p.m. when three or four gunman aimed at the vehicle and opened fire, said police News Affairs Officer Ronald Gaines.

The 18-year-old male, who is a student, was struck by a bullet in left leg and was the only shooting victim, police said. Police said the bus driver drove the teen to Provident Hospital of Cook County, where he is listed in good condition.

No one was in custody early Tuesday as Area South detectives investigated.
