A 13-year-old boy was hospitalized after he was shot when gunmen got out of vehicles and fired almost 100 rounds on a residential street in Waukegan Saturday evening.
The Waukegan Police Department responded around 11:10 p.m. Saturday to the area of May Street and Sunderlin Street for a report of a shooting.
Two vehicles stopped near a home and multiple gunmen exited and began shooting, according to a police report.
A 13-year-old boy was struck by the gunfire while standing outside of his home. No one else was struck by the bullets.
Nearly 100 shell casings were recovered by officers and a parked vehicle had been struck by over a dozen of the rounds, the report said.
The suspects fled the scene and the boy’s mother began driving her son to the hospital.
The mother stopped the car near 17th Street and Sheridan Road in North Chicago and called 911 around 11:20 p.m., according to fire department radio traffic.
The child was reported to be conscious and breathing at the time after sustaining a gunshot wound to his foot.
Paramedics responded and transported the juvenile victim to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan.
The boy was later transferred to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge for further treatment.
No suspects have been taken into the custody of the Lake County Jail, records show.
