Ramon Breceda, 16, was killed in a Little Village shooting that left two others wounded late Friday.

The three were in the 2400 block of South Washtenaw Avenue when two other males walked up and opened fire, police said.

Breceda, of the 2700 block of West 23rd Street, was shot in the chest and died at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, authorities said.

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the buttocks and an 18-year-old man was shot in the arm, police said. Both were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital for treatment.

Nobody has been charged for the murder.
