Lincoln Park shooting leaves man in critical condition overnight

A 25-year-old Auburn Gresham man is in critical condition after being shot overnight in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, police said. No one is in custody.

The victim was getting out of a vehicle on the 1500 block of West Fullerton when someone fired shots from a passing car, according to a CPD media statement.

A passerby flagged down passing patrol officers at 12:24 a.m. to report a man lying in the street nearby. The cops approached the man and realized he was shot.

Police said the gunman is a black male who fired from a silver car. A witness believed the shooter’s vehicle may be a Volkswagen Golf.

The victim is at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center with gunshot wounds to his back, abdomen, shoulder, foot, buttock, and thigh. He is the 16th person shot in Lincoln Park this year.

Area Central detectives are investigating the case. Police said the victim is “known” to the department.
