A 15-year-old is in critical condition after a shooting in the Grand Crossing neighborhood near the intersection of E. 73rd Street and S. Dobson Avenue.

CHICAGO - A teenager is in critical condition this morning after he was shot multiple times in a late Monday night drive-by shooting, authorities said.

The incident happened just before 11:00 p.m. in the 1000 block of E. 73rd Street in the Grand Crossing neighborhood on the city's south side.

There's not a lot of information to go on at this time but police said a 15-year-old male was out standing on the sidewalk on the above block when someone fired shots from a red sedan as it drove by.

A nearby ShotSpotter system counted an approximate 24 rounds fired.

The Chicago Fire Department took the teenage victim to Comer Children's Hospital where he was listed in critical condition with gunshot wounds to the left leg, chest, and arm pit.

There is no one in custody. Area One detectives are investigating.
