Wednesday’s non-fatal shootings included an incident in which a 15-year-old boy was shot and wounded. He was standing in an alley “in the 200 block of North Long Avenue” just after 11 a.m. when a black car pulled up and someone opened fire from inside the vehicle. The teenager was shot in the arm.

Breitbart News reported at least 24 people were shot, six fatally, over last weekend in Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago. A three-year-old girl, shot in the write, was among the wounded.
