Man OK after being shot in Rogers Park on Saturday afternoon

Two gunmen jumped out of a car and opened fire on a Rogers Park street corner Saturday afternoon. One round struck a 30-year-old man who is in good condition.

He was on a sidewalk in the 7600 block of North Paulina when the offenders stepped out of a black newer-model Toyota and began firing around 4:08 p.m., according to a CPD report. EMS took him to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston with a gunshot wound to his right foot.

According to witnesses, the gunmen, a Black male wearing a green hoodie and a Black male wearing a yellow hoodie, returned to their car and headed toward Triangle Park.

Police found at least ten shell casings at the scene, and gunfire damaged two parked cars.

Saturday’s victim is the 22nd person shot in Rogers Park this year. One of those victims died. Those numbers are down from this point last year when the area recorded 26 victims, four of whom died.
