The violence in Chicago continues to escalate, with 12 people being shot between Friday night and Saturday morning, including a 14-year-old boy, reports the Chicago Tribune.com.

The teen was shot in the 12400 block of South Perry Avenue in the West Pullman neighborhood about 8:35 p.m. He was shot in the back and leg and taken to Comer Children’s Hosptial, where he’s in stable condition, police said. He was standing on the sidewalk when someone stepped out from between houses and started shooting.

A man in his 20s was shot about 1:45 a.m. near Division and Maplewood avenues, police said. Additional information about that shooting wasn’t immediately available.

About the same time, two teens were shot in the 700 block of West 51st Street in the Back of the Yards neighborhood. A 16-year-old boy was shot in the hand and taken to St. Bernard Hospital and an 18-year-old man was shot in the leg and taken to Mercy Hospital and Medical Center, Gaines said.
