Two “highly uncooperative” men shot in Irving Park, police say

Two men who were shot in the Irving Park neighborhood early Friday are not cooperating with investigators, according to Chicago police. Both men are known gang members, according to a source.

The men were shot on the 3800 block of North Kedzie around 4:45 a.m., police said. At least one of the victims was apparently inside a van when he was shot. Cops found bullet holes in the van and one other vehicle on the block. Five shell casings were found at the scene.

Police said a 27-year-old man who was shot twice in his chest is in good condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. The other man, age 44, declined medical attention for a graze wound to his left shoulder.

Neither victim provided any information to police about what happened.

Area Five detectives are investigating.
