Victim uncooperative after being shot in Uptown overnight, police say

An Uptown man is not cooperating with detectives after a gunman shot him on the 4600 block of North Beacon overnight, police said.

The victim, age 50, was inside his apartment when someone began firing, and one bullet grazed his back around 2:20 a.m., according to CPD.

Police found about eight shell casings inside and outside the man’s apartment. Witnesses reported seeing a young Black male leaving the scene with a gun. He was wearing a red bandana, black pants, and a white t-shirt under a gray hoodie or shirt. The suspect reportedly ran southbound on Beacon, then eastbound on Wilson after the shooting.

An ambulance transported the victim to Weiss Memorial Hospital in good condition. He does not have any previous contact with Chicago police, the department said.

Area Three detectives are investigating.
