Police are questioning a suspect after a man was shot in the Old Town neighborhood on Saturday evening. The victim is the fifth person to be shot within a one-block stretch of Hudson Avenue since June 10.
Patrol officers heard gunfire at 7:26 p.m. and found a 35-year-old man unconscious between two vehicles on the 1300 block of North Hudson, according to police.
The victim, who suffered a gunshot wound to his right shoulder, regained consciousness and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition. He is not cooperating with investigators, police said.
A nearby police POD camera recorded much of the incident. Officers described a chaotic scene that appeared to involve multiple gunmen. One line of inquiry is trying to determine if the victim also fired shots during the incident, according to a source.
At least four shell casings were found at the scene, and a resident reported finding a bullet hole in their wall one block away on Cleveland Avenue, according to a CPD report.
Area Three detectives are investigating the case.
