A bullet flew into an Uptown restaurant’s window during a drive-by shooting on Sunday afternoon. No injuries were reported inside the business, but a man walking nearby suffered a gunshot wound to his arm, according to Chicago police.

The victim was in the 1000 block of West Argyle when someone fired shots from a black four-door sedan around 2:11 p.m., police said. Witnesses said the vehicle, last seen heading north on Kenmore, had a Zipcar logo on the back.

EMS took the victim to Weiss Hospital in good condition.

Yesterday’s victim is the 13th person shot in Uptown this year. That’s down from 16 at this point last year, a number that was driven higher by a quadruple shooting. The neighborhood had 14 shooting victims by this date in 2020 and 10 during the period in 2019.

On August 13, a 59-year-old man was shot in a drive-by just a few doors down from where Sunday’s shooting occurred. At the time, police believed he was not the intended target.
