A mother and her one-year-old son are currently in the hospital recovering after being victims of a shooting near Murray Park in Englewood.
Leslie Freeman was riding in the front passenger seat of a friend's van on Sunday evening with her son Demonte sitting in her lap when another van, which witnesses say was red, pulled up alongside the Freemans. The red van's door slid open and two men fired nearly a dozen shot into the vehicle.
The bullets missed the four other childen riding in the van and another 7-year-old child standing nearby but hit Leslie in the arm and Demonte in the leg.
An 18-year-old suspect in the shooting was later found wounded on the West Side.
