A 15-year-old boy was shot Thursday night in the West Pullman neighborhood on the city’s South Side.

The teen was wounded in the arm and leg in the 12000 block of South Perry Avenue about 10:15 p.m., according to police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer.

Shots were fired at him from a dark-colored four-door vehicle, Greer said, citing preliminary information. She said the shooting may have been gang-related.

The boy, who was taken to the University of Chicago Comer’s Children Hospital, was in stable condition, Greer said.

Nobody was in custody Thursday night as Area South detectives were investigating.
