Teen shot during robbery on South Side

A 16-year-old boy was shot in the leg during a robbery Friday night in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.

The teen was shot while he was being robbed about 9p.m. in the 600 block of East 85th Street, according to police News Affairs. He sustained a gunshot wound to his leg.

He was listed in good condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn early Saturday, police said.

The suspect fled the scene.
You know there was a Sun-Times story on why they won't stop shooting. It appears that unless there was a murder, there is rarely a conviction in shootings like this!

I just had to include a Google street view of the 600 block of East 85th St. It's right across from Cole Park Brown Memorial Park. On this same block is John T. Pirie Elementary School! One wouldn't expect this act there would they?
