A man was shot and critically wounded by two masked men during a robbery in the Fuller Park neighborhood while another was hurt during a Logan Square drive-by shooting Monday night, authorities said.
About 8:35 p.m., the 31-year-old man was shot multiple times on the 300 block of West 47th Street in the Fuller Park neighborhood, News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said. He was rushed to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, where his condition was serious but had stabilized.
The victim had been walking home from a bus stop when he was confronted by two assailants, one of whom displayed a handgun, said police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak.
They demanded his coat and when he refused, he began struggling with the offenders and they shot him in the chest, arm, and leg, said Kubiak.
They went through his pockets and took his wallet, stole his jacket and his phone, said Kubiak.
The two, who were wearing all black and black masks, fled northbound through an alley where his jacket and his wallet were recovered, according to Kubiak.
The shooting in the Logan Square neighborhood happened about 8 p.m. Monday on the 2800 block of North Dawson Avenue, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.
A man was walking down the block when he was struck in the leg by shots fired from a dark-colored vehicle, police said.
He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized.
Police believe the shooting may have been gang-related.
