Boy, 16, shot in Rogers Park

A 16-year-old boy is in serious condition after someone shot him on a Rogers Park street Wednesday evening, police said.

The teen told police he was outside on the 7700 block of North Marshfield when two men walked up to him, and one of them began shooting around 8:14 p.m. After the shooting, the two men fled south in a four-door black SUV that was waiting nearby, police said.

One bullet struck the teen in the left side of his groin area. He arrived at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston in a private car.

Area Three detectives are investigating.

Wednesday’s shooting is the third of the month for Rogers Park. A 25-year-old man was shot in the leg on the 1700 block of West Juneway on the evening of November 12. And a 30-year-old man was shot in the foot on the 7600 block of North Paulina on November 6.
