Man critically wounded in Uptown shooting

A 38-year-old man was shot in the head Friday evening as he sat in his car on the 1000 block of West Argyle in Uptown, police said. No one is in custody.

A witness reported seeing someone open fire on the victim from a dark-colored SUV that pulled alongside his car around 6:37 p.m. The SUV then backed down Argyle and fled, the witness reported.

Officially, though, police said the victim “was inside of a vehicle when he heard shots and felt pain.”

An ambulance transported the victim to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition.

Area Three detectives are investigating.
