Man shot in Old Town on Tuesday evening — and he walks it off

A 35-year-old man was shot while sitting in a parked car on the 400 block of West Evergreen in Old Town yesterday evening, police said. Officers found an ammunition magazine and shell casings at the scene.

An ambulance crew treated the man for a graze wound to his left arm and he declined transportation to a hospital. The victim is known to police, according to CPD.

Witnesses reported seeing shots fired from a white BMW that sped away westbound on Goethe around 9 p.m. Cops later found the vehicle abandoned nearby at 201 West Hill. Its owner reported the SUV stolen from the 1100 block of North Crosby about an hour before the shooting, according to police records. He reportedly left it running with the keys inside.

No arrests have been made. Area Central detectives are investigating.
