The teen was sitting on the curb on Hedrick Farm St, which is near Walzem and Gibbs-Sprawl on the northeast side about 3AM when the two men he had arranged to meet with on social media arrived. But they didnt have commerce on their minds.
One of the met pulled a gun and shot the teen twice. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
