Uptown: Man shot while riding bike near Foster and Broadway

A man who was shot while riding his bike in Uptown early Monday is in good condition, police said. The offenders remain at-large.

The victim, age 34, was riding his bike on the 1100 block of West Winona when a Hispanic man rolled up in a white sedan and asked for his gang affiliation, according to police. The gunman then opened fire, striking the victim in his right ankle, before speeding away.

Seven shell casings were found at the scene. An ambulance transported the victim to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment. 

The victim has been arrested four times in Uptown this year, including once for failing to comply with the state’s sex offender registration requirements, according to CPD records. Illinois State Police records show he is still not compliant with his registration.

Investigators are working to determine if a white Tesla that fled the scene is connected with the shooting. Area Three detectives are handling the case.
