A 34-year-old man refused medical condition after being grazed by a bullet in the Lathrop Homes neighborhood of Lincoln Park on Thursday afternoon. Area North detectives are investigating.
Police said the man was not cooperating with officers who responded to the scene at 1:30 p.m. The victim told police that he was shot after he got off a bus near Diversey and Damen, but officers quickly determined that he was not truthful.
Tonight, CPD said in a media alert that the man was on a sidewalk in the 2600 block of North Hoyne when a gunman opened fire from a black Nissan Maxima, grazing the victim’s wrist. The victim refused medical attention.
Today’s victim is the fourteenth person shot in the Lincoln Park community area this year. Three of the shootings have been fatal.
