AURORA, Ill. — A 13-year-old Aurora boy remains hospitalized with a life-threatening injury, three days after he was shot.

The car, described as possibly a Hyundai sedan, kept driving toward Farnsworth Avenue.

His 17-year-old brother flagged down a nearby sheriff deputy and is brother was taken to an Aurora hospital. He was later airlifted to another hospital where he’s been treated for a life-threatening head injury, according to police.
