CHICAGO — A man was shot and killed outside the Howard CTA station in Rogers Park overnight. This marks the third shooting incident in the neighborhood since Wednesday.

Chicago police offered few details about this morning’s shooting, saying only that a 45-year-old man was standing in the 7600 block of North Paulina when he suffered multiple gunshot wounds around 12:08 a.m. He was pronounced dead less than an hour later at St. Francis Hospital.

An officer at the scene said investigators found 14 shell casings in the area.

The man is the 12th person shot and the fourth killed in Rogers Park this year. That compares to 15 people shot at this point last year. There were 12 people shot as of this date in 2022 and 11 during the period in 2021.

On Thursday night, a 24-year-old man was shot as a group of offenders robbed him and his 28-year-old girlfriend in the 7200 block of North Ridge. Chicago police said the man tried to get ahold of one of the robbers’ guns, but it discharged, striking him in the hand. After getting wallets from the two victims, the robber fled. The injured victim is recovering.

A 50-year-old woman was shot when someone opened fire from a car outside Pottawattomie Park on Wednesday evening. CPD said a gunman opened fire from a black sedan around 8:13 p.m., and one of the bullets struck the woman in her lower left leg.

No arrests have been announced in connection with any of the shootings.
