A 26-year-old man is in critical condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital after he was shot in his chest in Bronzeville about 10:10 p.m., according to Officer Amina Greer, a police spokeswoman.
The man was in his car in the 3500 block of South Rhodes Avenue when a gunman walked up and began shooting, Greer said. The victim tried to drive away, but crashed into a parked car. He was taken to the hospital, and later arrested after police found a gun in his car.
Charges are pending, and no one is in custody for the shooting.
About 8:30 p.m., a 23-year-old man was shot in his leg in Rogers Park, Greer said. The man was standing on the sidewalk with a female in the 7400 block of North Ashland Avenue when two men walked up and began shooting.
