A 17-year-old boy was shot outside a Rogers Park apartment building around 9:30 Wednesday morning, Chicago police said.
Officers who responded to 911 calls about gunfire found the victim with two gunshot wounds to each of his legs in the 1600 block of West Juneway Terrace. His condition was stabilized at St. Francis Hospital.
Investigators found shell casings in the courtyard of an apartment complex, but neither the victim nor bystanders provided any helpful information to police, officers at the scene said.
The victim is the first person shot in Rogers Park this year, which had 31 shooting victims in 2022. Coincidentally, the first shooting in Rogers Park last year also occurred on January 4.
