CHICAGO (CBS) – A 9-year-old boy had stabilized in the hospital Thursday after being shot in the chest while riding in a car with his mother the night before.
It happened around 5:30 p.m. in the 6700 block of South Evans Avenue in the Park Manor neighborhood. Police sources said the boy’s mother was driving down the street with her boyfriend, a known gang member, when a passerby shot at them.
