CHICAGO — A 49-year-old carjacking victim was among five people shot citywide Wednesday.

The carjacking occurred about 8 p.m. in the 2000 block of North Richmond Street in Logan Square, said Officer Janel Sedevic, a police spokeswoman. The victim was sitting in his 1999 Chevy Tahoe when two men walked up.

One pulled a gun and demanded the man get out of his car, Sedevic said. He complied, but was shot in the chest and thigh. The carjackers drove off with his beige SUV, which has the Illinois license plate K489983.

The victim is in critical condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

No one is in custody.

In other shootings:

• Two young men were shot in the 3700 block of West Schubert Avenue in Logan Square about 8 p.m., Sedevic said. A 19-year-old man was shot in the arm, while a 20-year-old was hit in the  shoulder. Both were taken to Norwegian American Hospital in good condition.

• About 3:30 p.m. in South Shore, a 17-year-old boy was shot in the hip while walking with friends, Sedevic said. The teen had been passing through an alley in the 2000 block of East 75th Street when a passenger in a white car opened fire.

The teen was listed in "serious but stable" condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

• In Englewood, 21-year-old Jonathan Johnson was found shot to death inside a building about 1:30 p.m.

No one was in custody for any of the shootings.
