SAUGANASH — A man was wounded in a Sauganash shooting early Wednesday morning, police said.
The shooting was the first in at least decade in the neighborhood known for million-dollar homes decked with lights every Christmas, according to data compiled by DNAinfo.
At 3:10 a.m., a 22-year-old man was in a car heading east on Peterson Avenue with friends when an argument took place and the man was shot twice, said Chicago Police Officer Ana Pacheco, a spokeswoman for the department.
Ald. Margaret Laurino (39th) said police told her the men in the car are affiliated with a gang and were passing through Sauganash when the shooting occurred in the 4200 block of west Peterson Avenue near Sauganash Avenue.
"This appears to be an unfortunate incident not relating to the community area," Laurino said.
The man, who was shot two times in the hand and arm, was taken to St. Francis Hospital, where he is listed in "stable" condition, officials said.
No one is in custody for the shooting, Pacheco said.
