Man shoots through door after woman kicks him out of Near North apartment

An armed man fired shots through a Near North Side woman’s apartment door after she kicked him out of the unit early Wednesday, police said. The victim suffered a graze wound to her leg and refused medical treatment, according to a CPD spokesperson.

Police said the woman ejected the 35-year-old suspect around 4:20 a.m. from her ninth floor apartment on the 700 block of North Dearborn. The man then fired through the door and fragments struck the woman’s leg.

Officers responded to a 911 call at the building about 30 minutes later, but they could not find anyone with information about what happened.

Then, around 5:15 a.m., an attorney called police to the 100 block of West Superior so they could collect a firearm that someone had given to him. The victim of the Dearborn apartment incident was also at the scene.

Cops found a bullet hole in the woman’s apartment door and a slug lodged in a nearby wall.

Investigators are looking for the alleged shooter.
