A 17-year-old boy was shot and killed outside a Chicago Public Schools high school basketball game at Chicago State University Wednesday night.
The man was taken in serious condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center.
The shooting happened about 9:20 p.m. outside the campus gymnasium near 95th Street and King Drive
Chicago State Police put out a quick message to nearby officers, asking them to watch for a jeep that was pulled over east of the school a short time later. Two people were taken into custody and police found a gun inside the jeep.
The game was between Simeon Career Academy and Morgan Park High School, both schools located on Vincennes Avenue about 30 blocks apart, at 81st and 111th Streets.
An argument in a handshake line after the game preceeded the shooting, though it's not clear the two were related. The gym was tense and word spread through the gym that someone had been shot.
Police said the argument spilled into the parking lot and someone pulled out a weapon and shot the 20-year-old.
Each team was held for longer than normal in the locker rooms after the game. Nothing outside ordinary bumps and physical contact happened during the game.
Chicago police responded to the scene but are not involved with the investigation
