Also under investigation is the shooting of a 25-year-old man on the basketball courts of Loyola Park, 1200 West Greenleaf, at 4:54 p.m. on Thursday.
Police said a gunman emerged from a vehicle and fired about six shots, striking the victim in the upper left shoulder. The offender’s car, possibly a black Jeep Cherokee or black Chevy Equinox, sped from the scene.
The shooter was described as a black man wearing all black clothing who had a scarf over his face.
An ambulance transported the victim to St. Francis Hospital where he was stabilized.
A police department source said the victim is a known Gangster Disciple who was paroled in January after serving half of a seven-year sentence that he received for two armed robberies.
