CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A 17-year-old boy on electronic monitoring allegedly shot a teen six times on a South Side sidewalk as he walked to his grandmother’s house, the Sun-Times is reporting.

Larry Lucas, 17, of the 700 block of East 51st Street allegedly walked past the teen, then took out a gun and shot him on May 14 in the 6400 block of a South Paulina, prosecutors alleged.

The teen, a 17-year-old boy he knew from the neighborhood, fell to the ground after the first shot. But Lucas continued to shoot him six more times, even after he had curled into a ball, prosecutors said.

The teen was on his way to his grandmother’s house when he was shot.

Despite having seven gunshot wounds to the upper torso and back, the boy staggered to his grandmother’s home where she was able to call for help, prosecutors said.

The teen underwent several surgeries at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

He was able to identify Lucas in a photo array, authorities said.

Lucas was on electronic monitoring at the time of the shooting on an unlawful use of a weapon charge.

Lucas is charged as an adult with aggravated battery with a firearm, a Class X felony.

Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos-Ciesil ordered him held in lieu of bail on Saturday.
