Road rage shooting injures 2 near Soldier Field

CHICAGO — Two people were shot in a possible road rage incident while traveling on Lake Shore Drive in the South Loop on Sunday evening.

It happened around 8:08 p.m. as they rode north in the 2200 block of South Lake Shore Drive. That’s a couple of blocks south of Soldier Field.

Chicago police said the driver of a 2015 Nissan Sedan cut them off, and one of the victims honked at the other driver. The offender then pulled next to the victims’ Volkswagen, and someone shot at the victims from inside the Nissan.

A 37-year-old woman suffered a gunshot wound to the neck. She was in critical condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The other victim, a 26-year-old man, refused medical attention for a graze wound to his back, police said.

The gunman remains at large.
