Cops Investigate Reported Shooting Near Belmont and LSD

Chicago police are investigating after a 27-year-old man showed up at Illinois Masonic Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his right foot around 5:30 this morning.

The victim initially told police that the shooting happened along the lake front near Belmont. He later revised his story to say it happened near Belmont and Broadway.

Police have been unable to locate shell casings at either location.

The only report of gunshots in the area came around 3 o’clock this morning from a single 911 caller near Sheridan and Barry. No evidence of shooting was found there, according to police.
