CHICAGO – Three teens were shot in Austin Saturday night, including a 13-year-old girl who was critically injured.

Just after 8:30 p.m., police responded to the 1000 block of North Leclaire Avenue on the report of a shooting.

CPD said two teen boys, 15 and 16, were sitting on a porch when one of them noticed a red laser pointed at him. Multiple shots rang out shortly after, police said.

A 13-year-old girl was inside the residence and sustained a gun shot wound to the neck. She was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

The two teen boys were also shot and transported in good condition.
