A 27-year-old man was shot in the arm during an altercation inside a luxury apartment building in Old Town late Sunday. Details about the incident are scarce because witnesses were not cooperating with investigators.

A gunman shot the victim in his right arm during a confrontation in a 10th-floor unit at 1201 North LaSalle around 11:33 p.m., according to police records. The gunman then fled from the building with another man, and the victim made his way to the building lobby before summoning police, a witness said.

An ambulance transported the victim to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition. Police said the man does not have previous contact with CPD.

Officers at the scene described the offender as a Black male wearing a black shirt with blue jeans who carried a red satchel. 

Area Three detectives are investigating.
