October 14, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Two teenagers were shot late Saturday night near 63rd and St. Lawrence.

Sixteen-year-old Richard Modell was killed. The other teen, an 18 year-old male, suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

"It's been ongoing shooting for the past two hours over here," said community activist Andrew Holmes. "Young men, teens, standing out here. All of a sudden someone pulls a gun, discharges and someone's lost his life."

The 18-year-old was hospitalized in what officials say is "very critical" condition.
