Police: Man shot outside South Loop office supply store

A 30-year-old man is hospitalized following a shooting Saturday afternoon on a South Loop retail parking lot. No arrests have been made.

The gunman walked up to the victim and fired shots, striking him in the shoulder and foot outside Staples, 1130 South Canal, around 3:30 p.m., according to a CPD statement and witnesses.

An ambulance took the victim to Stroger Hospital. His condition was not released. Publicly-available CPD records do not show any arrests for the man since at least 2014.

Investigators recovered five shell casings from the parking lot. Police did not release any suspect descriptions.

Area Three detectives are investigating.

On the afternoon of August 5, a man was shot in the back and stomach after an argument with another man escalated outside the same retail complex.

Police arrested 28-year-old Cheyenne Rodriguez inside a nearby parking garage minutes after the August incident. Prosecutors charged him with aggravated battery with a firearm. He’s being held without bail.
