2 men injured in Irving Park shooting early Wednesday

More than 20 rounds were fired in a shooting that left two men injured early Wednesday in the Irving Park neighborhood. Police said both of the victims have histories with CPD.

The men, ages 24 and 23, were traveling on the 3800 block of North Richmond when someone opened fire on their vehicle from a white SUV around 12:42 a.m., according to a CPD statement. The men took themselves to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment.

Police said the younger man was shot in his right arm, and the older man suffered a graze wound to his face. Both were in good condition.

Investigators found three parked cars with bullet damage and a trail of shell casings on the 2900 block of West Bryon. A man who lives on the 3800 block of North Richmond said a bullet flew into his home, but no one inside was injured.

Area Five detectives are investigating the case.
