Man injured in South Loop drive-by shooting, police say

A 36-year-old man is in good condition after being shot in the South Loop this morning. No arrests have been made.

The victim and his girlfriend told police the incident began near Roosevelt and Racine when a blue Dodge Charger started to follow them as they rode their bikes, according to a report. A masked man inside the car fired at them in the 100 block of West Roosevelt, across from the Target store, around 6:15 a.m.

A bullet struck the man in his leg, and he was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in fair condition, police said.

The Charger, which was reported stolen earlier this week, fled the scene.
