A man told police that he was shot while walking with two friends in the heart of the Wicker Park neighborhood early Sunday. No one is in custody.
The 22-year-old he and his friends were approached by two other men and an argument broke out around 3:25 a.m. in the 1500 block of North Milwaukee. When one of the other men pulled out a gun, the victim’s friends ran, and shots were fired. One round struck the victim in his foot, police said.
The victim was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital and his condition has been stabilized.
Police said the victim is “known” to CPD, which typically means that he has a recent arrest record.
