Chicago shooting on Near West Side kills boy, 14

CHICAGO -- A 14-year-old boy was shot and killed Wednesday afternoon on the Near West Side.

Javion Ivy was outside just before 4 p.m. in the 2200 block of West Adams Street when someone shot him in the abdomen, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner's office said.

Ivy was transported to Stroger Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

At the scene, the block was quiet as police scoured the area. Three evidence markers could be seen near the intersection of Adams Street and Bell Avenue, one placed next to a dark-colored backpack.

The shooting occurred about two blocks from Robert Nathaniel Dett Elementary School and Chicago Bulls College Prep.

No arrests have been made.

A man who lives nearby told ABC7 he heard gunshots and then saw someone who he believed to be the gunman walk past the teen after he shot him.
