3 men in custody after woman is shot in Lincoln Park, police say

Three people are in custody after a woman was shot on a Lincoln Park sidewalk overnight.

Police said the woman was on the 2200 block of North Lincoln when she got into an argument with three men around 3:50 a.m. One of the men pulled out a gun and fired shots, striking her one time in her forearm, according to CPD.

The men reportedly fled in an SUV, but witnesses helped police track the suspects down in the 700 block of West Fullerton a short time later. Officers detained the trio for questioning.

EMS took the woman to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in fair condition.

She is the 18th person shot in Lincoln Park this year. That compares to seven shooting victims in all of last year and 15 in all of 2019.
