BEVERLY — A man walking along 95th Street in Beverly was wounded in a shooting Thursday afternoon, according to Ald. Matt O'Shea (19th).

The Chicago Police Department confirmed the shooting took place at 3:40 p.m. A 33-year-old man was shot in his left arm and later taken in "good condition" to Advocate Christ Hospital for treatment, police said.

No one was in custody in connection with the shooting, and police were continuing to investigate, according to O'Shea, who updated constituents via email Friday afternoon.

"Preliminary reports indicate this was not a random act of violence, but rather the result of a domestic-related incident. The victim, who was not seriously wounded, and the suspected shooter knew each other," O'Shea said in the email.

Shortly after the shooting, O'Shea said the shooting took place at 2141 W. 95th St. and that the shooter was driving in a car headed eastbound. The victim was walking on the south side of the street headed to his car, he said.

"It appears that two bad guys had a beef with each other." O'Shea said at the time, adding the victim was not a 19th Ward resident, and nobody else was injured in the shooting that occurred near the intersection of 95th and Leavitt streets.
