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.

Saturday’s shooting unfolded less than a half-block from where a 5-month-old boy and two adults were shot on Thursday evening. Prosecutors yesterday charged 21-year-old Teantun Davis with the crime. 

On June 10, a gunman fatally shot 32-year-old Courtney Horton inside an apartment building on the 1300 block of North Hudson. Rotonio Esco, 32, is charged with first-degree murder in Horton’s death.
