CHICAGO (AFP) -- Three people were killed — including two 14-year-old boys — and 11 other people were wounded by gunfire in Chicago Wednesday. One of the boys, Javion Ivy, was outside in the 2200 block of West Adams Street when someone shot him in the abdomen, police said. He was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital. The other boy, James Sweezer, was standing on the sidewalk in the 1400 block of South 73rd Street in Englewood when someone in a passing dark-colored car opened fire, police said. He was struck in the head and transported to Comer Children’s Hospital, where he later died.
A woman was shot to death Wednesday night, also in Englewood. The 29-year-old was sitting in a parked car in the 7400 block of South Vincennes Avenue when two people approached and opened fire about 7 p.m., police said. She was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
