A young man survived a gunshot wound to the neck Wednesday night in a shooting on the city's Far North Side, authorities said.
The victim, 21, was wounded just before 7:40 p.m. Wednesday in the 1900 block of West Chase Street in the Rogers Park neighborhood, according to Chicago police and fire officials.
Authorities at the scene initially believed the victim was in his teens.
While the victim was taken to St. Francis Hospital in serious-to-critical condition, his condition was soon upgraded to good, police said.
Police were still gathering details on how the shooting occurred. Authorities had a description of the shooter, but no arrests had been made.
In an unrelated shooting, a 13-year-old boy was shot and wounded in the buttocks as he stood with two friends on the sidewalk in the 6100 block of South Honore Street in the Englewood neighborhood at about 10:20 p.m., police said.
The three were approached by two men, one of whom opened fire, police said.
The boy was taken to University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital in good condition. Police didn't offer a motive in the shooting.
