UPTOWN — The mother and father of a 1-year-old boy shot in his head during a domestic disturbance in Uptown have been arrested and charged with child endangerment, according to police.
About 7:30 p.m. Monday, the boy was brought to Weiss Hospital in Uptown. His father said he was shot at near the corner of Leland and Clarendon avenues, but the bullets struck his son, Chicago Police said at the time.
Police officers did not find a crime scene at the intersection. An investigation determined the boy was unintentionally shot in his home in the 800 block of West Eastwood Avenue while his parents were involved in a “domestic incident,” according to police.
