A 15-year-old boy was walking alone near Grant Park Wednesday night when an argument broke out between two groups of males nearby and someone started firing shots, one grazing the boy’s face, according to Chicago police.

Police officers responded to a call of multiple shots fired about 10:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of South Michigan Avenue in the South Loop, police said. Witness told officers that they heard shots then saw five males running from the area. Officers originally couldn’t find a victim.

Later, a 15-year-old boy arrived at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition for the graze wound, police said. He was transferred to Lurie Children’s Hospital.

No arrests have been made.
