Man shot on North Side, possibly by co-worker at security firm: CPD report

Chicago police are trying to determine if a man who was shot on the North Side yesterday evening was targeted by a co-worker.

The victim, 48, called 911 from the 2900 block of North Oakley after someone shot him in the chest around 10:45 p.m. Tuesday. EMS transported the victim to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition.

In a media statement, police said the victim knew the gunman. A CPD report said the victim identified the offender as someone he works with at a security company. He told investigators that the co-worker followed him to Oakley after they were in an argument nearby.

No arrests have been made.

The victim is the first person shot this year in the North Center community area. That pace is generally in line with other recent years, according to city records.
