Chicago Police: Boy, 12, shot while playing with friends outside Gage Park home

A 12-year-old TROUBLED boy playing with friends outside his Gage Park home was shot in the chest by a gunman who drove up in a red SUV and opened fire, police said.

The boy was hit in the chest around 9 p.m. near his father's house in the 3000 block of West 54th Street. He was listed in critical condition at Mount Sinai Hospital, according to police.

Police said the boy had no known gang ties and no one was in custody.

Community activist Andrew Holmes said the boy was playing with other children, some younger than him, when the shots were fired. "Talking to some of the neighbors, they said there was a good amount of kids out there," he said.

"When the weather changes, they want to be outside," he added while standing outside the hospital. "But it's a safety risk right now. You know, look just what happened and the weather is about to change over the weekend."
