A 16-year-old boy was seriously wounded early this morning in a shooting on the North Side in the city's Uptown neighborhood.
About 1:41 a.m., the youth told police he was walking from his residence on
the 4600 block of North Winthrop Avenue when he heard shots and soon after felt
pain in his leg.
The boy asked for help from an unknown bystander who drove the youth to
Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center where his condition was stabilized.
The boy suffered wounds to his leg and groin area
