A 10-year-old Chicago boy was shot in the leg in the city's Albany Park neighborhood Monday night as he returned home from trick-or-treating.

The boy was shot just before 10 p.m. in the 4700 block of North Sacramento, and was listed in good condition at the Children's Memorial Hospital, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The boy was injured in Ronan Park while he was standing "with several others" on a bridge over the Chicago River, according to the Chicago Tribune. Another police source told Fox Chicago that the boy was an innocent bystander in the shooting.

According to CBS Chicago, the boy was in a Halloween costume at the time of the shooting and was returning home after trick-or-treating with friends. Trick-or-treating officially ended in Chicago at 7 p.m. Monday.

Community members told Fox Chicago the area has typically felt safe, though they've noticed an increase in evening crime as of late.

No one is yet in custody in the shooting and additional details pertaining to the shooting were not immediately available.
