One teen was killed and another wounded in a shooting early Sunday in the Kenwood neighborhood.

The shooting occurred near 47th and South Ellis at approximately 12:50 a.m. A 15-year-old boy was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. A 16-year-old was wounded in the leg and rushed to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Witnesses said the 16-year-old limped from the scene and screamed, "They shot my brother."

Neighbors said they heard gunshots and looked up to see the two young victims.

"I heard what sounded like seven to nine shots or firecrackers so immediately I called police and told them what I heard," said Cherry Hardie.

Police said the shooter was inside a red minivan.

No one is in custody and Area Central detectives are investigating.
