Rogers Park shooting leaves man critically wounded, police say

A man was found critically injured by gunshot wounds in a Rogers Park apartment on Tuesday evening, police said. No arrests have been made in the case. Meanwhile, police have announced charges against a woman in connection with one of last summer’s shootings in the neighborhood.

In the new case, police said an acquaintance found a man with gunshot wounds to his eye and hand inside an apartment on the 7600 block of North Sheridan around 10 p.m. yesterday. The victim was critically injured and is now at St. Francis Hospital, according to a CPD statement.

Investigators could not immediately identify the victim, but the CPD statement said he is about 20-years-old.

Cops found a shell casing inside the apartment.

Area Three detectives are in charge of the investigation.

There were 25 people shot in Rogers Park last year. One of them died. The neighborhood also recorded one fatal stabbing. Charges have been filed in that case.

Shortly before last night’s shooting victim was discovered, police announced that charges had been filed in one of last year’s shootings.

Inkashi Wells, 27, is charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting a 29-year-old woman on the 7600 block of North Marshfield on the evening of August 1, according to a CPD news release. The victim suffered a gunshot wound to her hand. Wells is scheduled to appear in bond court Wednesday afternoon.
