A 16-year-old boy was killed and another teen seriously wounded in a shooting Friday afternoon in the South Side's Englewood neighborhood. Emergency crews responded to the shooting at 1331 W. 72nd Place at 12:47 p.m., according to Fire Media Affairs Chief Kevin MacGregor, who said two people were found shot at the address.

16-year old Terrance Green was shot in the back during an apparent driveby shooting.

He played football at Harper High School. Green's father says his son "'had a gift," and he described his son as an outgoing teen.

Green was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital at 4:40 p.m., a spokesman for the Cook County Medical Examiner's office said.

Another victim, reportedly 17-years-old, was also wounded in the shooting.

Wentworth Area detectives are investigating.
