The boy realized he had been hit in the leg, and a person in a nearby car drove him to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, Mirabelli said. He was initially listed in “stable” condition.
The boy did not know anything about the shooter or where the shots came from, Mirabelli said, and no one is in custody.
Area North detectives are investigating.
