LOGAN SQUARE — A 19-year-old man says he was shot in his elbow on Western Avenue early Sunday evening, according to police.
The shooting occurred around 5:50 p.m. in the 2100 block of North Western Avenue, according to Officer Michelle Tannehill, a Chicago Police spokeswoman.
The man told police he was "walking down the street and heard shots from a vehicle," before he was shot, Tannehill said.
He is at Illinois Masonic Hospital in stable condition, police said.
Police believe the shooting was gang-related and Area North detectives are investigating, Tannehill said.
Folks who said they heard the information on a police scanner said the scanner reported the incident along the 2000 block of North Western Avenue, near McClean Avenue, on the west side of the street.
The 2000 and 2100 blocks of North Western Avenue straddle both Bucktown and Logan Square, with Bucktown on the east side of Western and Logan Square on the west side of the street.
Around 7 p.m. Sunday, an instructor at a traffic school at the corner of McClean and Western Avenue, who was working at his desk at the time of the shooting, said that he did not hear any gunshots or commotion.
The man, who asked not to be named, said police came in to interview him and that they seemed somewhat skeptical that a shooting had happened.
"It's possible [the victim] was shot somewhere else and dropped off here," the driving instructor said.
A patron at O's Tap, workers at a Moped shop, a grocery store and a hot dog stand, all on the west side of the 2000-2100 blocks of Western Avenue, said they did not hear any gunshots or see ambulances at the time of the reported shooting.
