A 14-year-old boy who was wounded in a drive-by shooting allegedly waited 14 hours before reporting his injury to his school nurse.
The teen was shot in the foot around 7:10 p.m. Wednesday night outside a Lathrop Elementary School on the West Side, CBS Chicago reports. Two other males, ages 12 and 18, were also wounded when shots were fired from a passing purple Pontiac Grand Prix.
The other victims were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital Wednesday night, but the 14-year-old, who sustained a graze wound to his foot, waited until school the following day to report the incident and his injury to the Lathrop school nurse, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The nurse called 911, and the boy was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was in good condition, according to Fox Chicago. The two other victims were also described as being in good condition.
No one is currently in custody for the shooting, but Harrison area detectives are investigating the incident.
