A teenaged boy and a young man were shot within blocks of President Obama‘s  Chicago home in the past week, police said. The attacks are part of a wave of  violent crime that has recently swept through the Windy City.

The 17-year-old boy was shot twice around 4:20 a.m. on Saturday morning in  Kenwood.

Obama’s closely protected street is mere block east of the scene, reports CBS.

The boy was shot in the leg and posterior. He is currently in critical  condition at a nearby hospital.


He was one of at least seven people who were shot Friday night and Saturday  morning in Chicago, reports the Chicago Tribune.

This incident is disturbing similar to one from earlier in the week. Stephen  Williams, 23, was parked with his girlfriend in the same neighborhood, about  three blocks from the Obama home.

Two men approached the car with a handgun and attempted to rob the couple.  After Williams resisted, one man shot him dead.

Violent crime has been escalating in Chicago. Since last Thursday, at least  82 people have been shot in the city, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.


The city’s government plans to work closely with other law enforcement  agencies, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Marshals  Service, to confront this problem.

On Friday, Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that the Chicago Police Department will extend its violence-reduction  initiative beyond the seventh and 11th districts.

The home of President Barack Obama rises about the scrubs  and small trees in the Kenwood neighborhood of Chicago.

“After showing improvements in two districts that historically suffer from a  high crime rate, we are expanding our work with federal agencies to aggressively  grow this initiative,” Emanuel said.
