North Center: Man shot while sitting in his car overnight

A 30-year-old man is in good condition after being shot as he sat in his car in the North Center neighborhood early Tuesday, police said. No one is in custody.

The man was in the 3900 block of North Hoyne at 2:10 a.m. when several shots were fired into the driver’s side door of his white Nissan sedan from another vehicle. He was struck one time in the left side of his groin, police said.

Police said the man did not know the gunman or where the offender went after he was shot.

Other witnesses saw a heavyset Hispanic man with facial hair who stands about 5’9” tall enter a red SUV and flee the scene after the shooting. Another man in a blue hoodie or t-shirt was seen running from the northeast corner of Hoyne and Byron after the shots were fired.

Police said the victim was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center where his condition was stabilized. He is not believed to reside in the North Center neighborhood.
