Man injured in Old Town shooting

A 21-year-old man was grazed during a shooting in Old Town on Monday evening, police said. No arrests have been made.

The man told police he was walking in the 1300 block of North Hudson when shots were fired just after 10:30 p.m. A police officer who was in the area reported hearing at least rounds fired around the same time.

One round grazed the man’s right leg, police said. Cops found shell casings from two different calibers littering the area around Hudson and Evergreen. A car window was also shattered by gunfire. The presence of two calibers may indicate that more than one person fired shots during the incident.

The injured man was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition, according to police. Police did not release any suspect descriptions. Area Three detectives are investigating.

According to court records, the man who was shot posted $100 bail to get out of jail after being accused of robbing a woman in Lincoln Park in 2019. That robber case is still pending.
