Chicago police, firefighters, and paramedics responded about 2:40 p.m. Wednesday May 22, 2019 to report of a male teen that was just shot at the 31st Street beach.
Police and medics arrived to find a teen shot in his left thigh and left foot. The teen was transported to Level I Trauma Center University of Chicago Medical Center, where police said he “was stabilized.”
The 18-year-old senior student attending Chicago high school Simeon Career Academy was shot while he was at the beach with his friends. Graduation at Simeon Career Academy is next week. The wounded student and his friends had taken the day off from school to spend time at 31st Street Beach.
An initial police investigation determined the teen was walking to the parking lot from the beach about 2:40 p.m. when someone in a gray Nissan Altima drove up near the teen’s location, got out of the car, walked toward the teen and fired shots.
Police are investigating the shooting that they have determined was a targeted attack, but initially no suspect is in custody.
