Among the other 22 gunshot wound victims, was a 13-year-old boy.

On Friday night around 7.58pm, about four to five men were trying to break into a parked car.

The owner of the car, a 34-year-old woman, confronted the men at which time one of the men pulled out a gun and pointed it at the woman, according to police.

Having a concealed carry permit, the woman pulled out her own handgun and shot the 13-year-old boy who was a part of the crew of men.

He was taken to Comers Children's Hospital with a gunshot wound in his neck. CBS reported him in fair condition.

The other men fled the parking lot and no weapon has been found.

Some of those wounded this weekend have sustained serious injuries, including a 19-year-old with a gunshot wound to his back.

Another young man was left in critical condition after someone shot him in the left leg and right stomach.
