A 6-year-old boy riding in a car with his mom was shot on the West Side overnight, according to police, the boy among at least 14 people shot, two fatally, since Friday afternoon across the city.

Police aren't certain of the boy's condition but said he was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital. He was in a car about 11:30 p.m. Friday in the 4200 block of West Wilcox Street in the West Garfield Park neighborhood when someone started shooting. He is the seventh child age 7 or younger shot in Chicago since June 30.

Police don't believe the mother or the boy was the target but it's not clear who the shooter was aiming toward. No one is in custody.

Rahm needs to get off his lazy ass and call in the state police, Illinois National Guard, and if necessary, the FBI, and take the street thugs, gang bangers and animals away from their guns by any means necessary. Let's see at least 500 "suicides by cop" of anyone wearing gang symbols before the end of the year.
