Police investigate shooting in South Loop apartment

A South Loop man told police that three men came into his apartment early Thursday and fired guns, leaving him with a graze wound to his chin, according to CPD.

The 26-year-old said he was in his home on the 1400 block of South Michigan when the men opened fire around 4:19 a.m. He immediately ran from his apartment, police said.

He was taken to Mercy Hospital in a private car that left the scene before police arrived. The man was later transferred to Stroger Hospital due to concerns about the condition of a previous gunshot wound, according to a source. He’s in good condition.

Meanwhile, Evergreen Park police responded to a gunshot victim at Little Company of Mary Hospital in the south suburb around the same time that the South Loop victim showed up at Mercy Hospital. Cops suspect there is a connection between the two victims.

CPD’s Area Three detectives and Evergreen Park police are investigating.
