Police officers responding to shots fired in a neighborhood in Zion found a 14-year-old boy who had been shot Friday evening, authorities said.
Zion Police Department Lt. Christopher Sweeting told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that officers were on patrol around 6:41 p.m. Friday.
Officers responded to the 1900 block of Ezra Avenue in Zion after hearing shots fired in the vicinity.
Officers found a 14-year-old male from Waukegan who had gunshot wounds, Sweeting said.
The teen was transported by ambulance to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for treatment.
Sweeting said that the victim’s injuries were not life-threatening.
Officers located fired evidence as well as other pertinent evidence at the scene.
Investigators believe this was a targeted attack and was not random, Sweeting said.
No arrests have been made yet and the case remains under investigation by the Zion Police Department.
