A 15-year-old boy was killed and a 14-year-old boy was shot and seriously injured in an attack that took place in Brighton Park neighborhood.
They were shot around 3.30pm in the 2500 block of West 45th Street, police said.
The older boy couldn’t make it as he pronounced dead when he got to Stroger Hospital. The 14-year-old boy was shooting the lower back and was taken in a terrible condition to Stroger.
This happened when they were on the sidewalk when at least one attacker came up and shot them. The attacker(s) fled on foot.
This is so sad. Why would anyone do such cruel things to children? I hope they receive justice soonest.
