CHICAGO - Three people, including a 5-month-old boy, were shot Thursday in Old Town on the North Side.

A 5-month-old boy was grazed in the temple and taken taken to Lurie, where he was stabilized and “resting comfortably,” Carter said. Two men, 19 and 25, were also shot; both were stabilized at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Carter said officers responded to the scene and quickly received descriptions of a shooter and a vehicle.
After broadcasting those descriptions, officers tracked the vehicle to the intersection of Princeton Avenue and 37th Street and took two people into custody without incident, Carter said, noting that investigators are looking into whether another person was inside the vehicle at the time of the shooting.
