15 Year Old Among Seven Shot in Chicago

With over two months left in 2012, the city has already matched last year's homicide total.

At least seven people were wounded, including a 15-year-old boy, in shootings across the South and West Sides since Thursday afternoon. 

The boy was shot around 10:15 p.m. Thursday in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side and taken to Comer Children's Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said. 

He was shot in the arm and ankle by someone who may have fired from a dark four-door car near 121st Street and Perry Avenue as the boy stood on a corner, police said. 

Another teen was wounded in the Park Manor neighborhood around 11:25 p.m., police said. A 17-year-old girl and a 24-year-old man were shot while standing in front of a house in the 6800 block of South Wabash Avenue

The girl was shot in the chest and back and was in fair condition at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital, police said. The man was shot in the chest and grazed in the arm and was at the same hospital in fair condition.
