12-year old Chicago boy shot by stray bullet while riding his bike

A 12-year old boy was shot by a stray bullet when a man opened fire from his car, intending to hit another person, in the Back of the Yards neighborhood of Chicago.

From an article:
The boy in the Back of the Yards was on his bicycle around 6 p.m. when someone in a red two-door car opened fire near 50th and Peoria streets and sped off, police said. The 12-year-old was taken to Provident Hospital of Cook County with a wound to the leg.

This was one of a number of shootings in Chicago that weekend, including in the same neighborhood.

Bullets don't know when to stop.
