ROGERS PARK — A 23-year-old man was shot Thursday afternoon in Rogers Park.
The shooting happened about noon when the man was standing in the 6900 block of North Greenview Avenue, said Officer Janel Sedevic, a Chicago Police spokeswoman.
An unknown man exited a silver sedan and began firing at the man, grazing him in the left hand. The shooter then returned to his car and fled the scene. The man suffered a very minor graze wound and refused treatment on the scene, Sedevic said.
No one is in custody for the shooting.
Several witnesses heard the gunshots and saw people running from the scene Thursday morning.
"It happened right in front of us," said Kalani Hargrove, 33, who was driving east on Farwell Avenue when they heard the shots.
She said she was looking at an apartment she was considering renting when two men on bicycles, who didn't appear to be involved with the shooting, dove to the ground, and then sought cover behind a parked car.
Then another man ran southbound on Greenview. A police officer on the scene said that person was in custody but couldn't say how he was involved with the incident.
Rogers Park Police District Cmdr. Thomas Waldera was on the scene about 1 p.m., standing among a dozen evidence markers on the sidewalk on the east side of Greenview. He also was talking with an unknown person in the back of a squad car parked in the alleyway between Farwell and Morse avenues.
A resident who was in her apartment near the scene said she heard one shot, a pause, and then several more.
A resident of the neighborhood for three decades, she said safety in the neighborhood has gotten "better and better" over the years — until now.
"This summer everything hit the fan," said the woman, who declined to give her name.
Some residents and business owners had complained about several high-profile shootings on Morse Avenue in the past few months.
