Two boys, ages 12 & 14, and 18-year old injured in school shooting in Chicago

Two boys and a young man, ages 12, 14, and 18, were outside a Chicago elementary school when a car pulled up and someone from within opened fire, wounding the three in their feet or ankles.  The shooting may have been gang-related.

From the article:

The teen went to a school nurse this morning and said he had suffered a graze wound to the foot in a shooting Wednesday evening in front of the school, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.
Two others -- a 12-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man -- were also wounded, police said.
The 12-year-old and the 18-year-old man were walking by the school at about 6:30 p.m. when a purple car, possibly a Pontiac Gran Prix, drove up and someone inside fired several shots, striking both of them in the foot or ankle, Perez said.
The 14-year-old was nearby and was also struck by the gunfire, police said. None of the injuries were considered serious.
