Man shot during possible robbery attempt in Bucktown early Tuesday

A Bucktown man was shot during a possible robbery attempt behind his home early Tuesday, according to Chicago police and a source. The victim is in fair condition, police said, but no arrests have been made.

A gunman shot the 52-year-old man behind the victim’s home in the 1800 block of North Marshfield around 12:14 a.m., according to a CPD statement. The offender reportedly jumped into the victim’s Porsche, but he got back and out fled the scene. A witness reported seeing a red Audi speeding away from the area. One shell casing was found at the scene.

Police said the victim was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his arm.

Perhaps not coincidentally, carjackers took a red 2017 Audi A3 from a woman at gunpoint in Lakeview on Monday evening. And a similar car was used during a robbery on the 2200 block of North Sacramento in Logan Square shortly before the man was shot.

Area Five detectives are investigating the shooting.
