16-Year-Old Hospitalized After Being Shot on Chicago Train
A 16-year-old was shot on the CTA Red Line in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago Sunday around 2 a.m.
CBS News reported the 16-year-old “was shot in the ear and eye” and hospitalized in serious condition.
A shell casing and blood were found in the train car but the 16-year-old victim could not provide any details on the shooter, CWB Chicago noted. However, other passengers were able to provide a description of the suspect.
