A 13-year-old boy was injured in a drive-by shooting Friday night in Austin on the West Side.

He was walking on a sidewalk with a friend around 8:35 p.m. in the 1100 block of North Lawler Avenue when an occupant of a black SUV opened fire, Chicago police said.

The boy was shot in the ankle and taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was listed as undamaged, police said. No other injuries were reported.

He was the second teenager shot dead in the Austin neighborhood Friday night. About three hours earlier, a 16-year-old boy had been injured in a shooting about a mile and a half away.
