A 15-year-old boy was shot a block from a Bronzeville high school this afternoon.
The boy was taken to Comer Children's Hospital with a gunshot wound to his right leg following the shooting about 2:48 p.m. in the 3800 block of South Calumet Avenue. His condition was stabilized at the hospital.
The boy was walking on the sidewalk when a man or boy came up and fired two shots at him, hitting him once, then fleeing.
No one was in custody.
The block where the boy was shot is a block east of Wendell Phillips Academy High School, 244 E. Pershing Road.
