Six teenagers injured and two men dead in Chicago mass shooting drive-by

Six teenage boys were injured, and two men killed, when a beige vehicle drove up and shot at a group of people in Chicago.

From the article:
Five teens were wounded: two 13-year-old boys, a 14-year-old boy, a 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy, according to police preliminary reports.

The 14-year-old was taken in critical condition to Comer Children's Hospital. Two other teens were shot in their legs and taken in fair-to-serious condition to Trinity Hospital, and two others were taken to Jackson Park Hospital with gunshot wounds to the legs, Langford said.

He said the conditions of the four teens taken to Trinity and Jackson Park had stabilized by late Sunday night.
Police said another 15-year-old boy was shot in the leg a short distance away, about eight minutes after the group was shot at the store, but it was not clear if it was related.

Two men were killed in the attack:  Gregory Glinsey, age 54, and Jamal Harris, 19.  Glinsey was about to attend his mother's 80's birthday party, where around 100 party guests were waiting.
