A high school student in Chicago was killed and two others were wounded less than two blocks from their campus in what police believe was a targeted attack.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the shooting occurred Wednesday after classes were dismissed from Senn High School on the city's North Side.

Police said a vehicle approached the students on a street east of the school and several people got out and opened fire. No one was in custody in the shooting.

Detectives investigating the attack said they believed the boys had been targeted.

The shooting occurred less than a week after two students were killed in a shooting near Innovations High School in downtown Chicago..

Authorities said there was no evidence the two attacks were related.
