Shootings across the city Friday afternoon and night wounded at least ten people, according to Chicago police, including four teens in three separate South and West side attacks.
Someone shot two boys, both 16, about 5:11 p.m. Friday afternoon in the 1700 block of East 71st Place in the South Shore neighborhood on the South Side. Both were taken to Comer Children's Hospital in stable condition with gunshot wounds to their legs.

Actually, didn’t Chicago recently pass some pretty good gun laws?
In a related story no one was shot in Kabul on friday nite!
Those were a bunch of black kids.
You cant get the NPR-listening crackas, and their president, passionate unless they were cute white kids.
Likely because blacks are some of the biggest fans of the 2nd amendment. They found out long ago that “911 is a joke”, and the cops most of the time exist to come to the SCENE OF A CRIME, not to prevent one.
A savvy Republican should stand up and make the point that a Newton happens every month in Chicago but Obama and the media don’t seem to care because they are poor black children.
Some of the most oppressive gun control laws in the country certainly have worked out well for Chicago.
Yes, Zero described them as "beautiful little kids". As opposed to the kind of kids who are killed more often in the Chicago projects? That he's never shed a tear about.
It was a gun what shot 'em (and of course it's also the will of Mayor Twinkletoes).
This is the elephant in the room. Let’s set aside mass shootings by deranged people for a moment.
The single largest group of gun violence victims (and most other types of violence) are blacks. Most of their perps are other blacks.
The 2nd largest group of gun violence victims are Latinos and most of their perps are other Latinos.
If blacks and Latinos committed violent crime at the same rates as their co-citizens, we’d not be having this conversation.
Those are about half in black neighborhoods and half in hispanic neighborhoods
The motto on the side of Chicago Police Cars seems to be,"To Serve and Defect".
Which is now more than two thirds of the city. Welcome to the city with a future, a dim future.
“This is the elephant in the room.”
Despite the obvious fact that Chicago has tragically turned into a shooting gallery, the liberal media avoids discussing any statistics. Why? Democrat controlled Chicago is their kind of town.
