Loop: Man shot near Chicago Board of Trade

A 25-year-old man was shot on a Loop street corner Thursday evening, police said. No one is in custody. He is the third person to be shot in the Loop since October 11.

According to police, the victim was on the corner of Clark and Van Buren, across the street from the Chicago Board of Trade, when a gunman approached and fired shots around 5:14 p.m. 

An ambulance transported the victim to Northwestern Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. He is in good condition, police said.

CPD did not release a description of the gunman.

So far this year, sixteen people have been shot in the Loop. That compares to only three shootings in all of 2019, according to records maintained by CWBChicago.
