Chicago police chased down and arrested a gunman who shot and critically wounded another man on the city's West Side, authorities said.
The shooting was one of at least four late night shootings occurring across the city.
Officers saw the unidentified man open fire on the 33-year-old victim at about 10:20 p.m. in the 4300 block of West Madison Street in the West Garfield Park neighborhood, police said, citing early reports.
The victim, who was struck multiple times in the back and abdomen, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition, police said.
The officers quickly chased after the gunman finally taking him into custody. Police hadn't determined the motive for the shooting, saying that suspect wasn't cooperating with investigators.
Big surprise there.
And once again, either by accident of by design, the Tribune reveals the crime increase that Rahm and Garry insist isn't really there:
- As of Sunday, Chicago had 79 more homicides than it did through the same time last year, according to preliminary police statistics. The city has also experienced 177 additional shootings this year.
