A 17-year-old boy remains hospitalized after he was shot and seriously injured inside an apartment building in Waukegan, police said.
The Waukegan Police Department and Waukegan Fire Department responded around 7 p.m. Monday to the area of Golf Road and Elmwood Avenue in Waukegan.
Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Joe Florip told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that officers located a victim with a gunshot wound at the intersection.
Officers located a scene on the second floor of an apartment building in the 1700 block of Golf Road.
Blood and shell casings were located in the second-floor hallway, Florip said.
Officers check all of the area apartments but no one else appeared to have been shot.
The victim, a 17-year-old male from Waukegan, was transported by ambulance to an area hospital.
The boy remains hospitalized Thursday after suffering serious injuries in the shooting. His condition has since been stabilized.
Florip said the case remains open and under active investigation by the Waukegan Police Department.
