- Shootings on two area expressways left two young men wounded overnight, according to police.
A 24-year-old man was shot during a chase between two cars heading south on the Dan Ryan Expressway about 3:15 a.m. Sunday, according to police.
The 24-year-old suffered a leg wound and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where his condition stabilized, police said.
A witness saw two cars speeding down the highway and then gunfire, police said. The man was dropped off by his friends at 79th Street just above the expressway in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.
Earlier, about 1 a.m. Sunday, a young man whose age wasn't available was shot on the Kennedy Expressway near Armitage Avenue in the Bucktown neighborhood on the North Side. Police shut the outbound lanes to search for evidence.
The man was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in good condition.
Must be the Troopers' fault since we don't patrol the highways. McCompStat probably won't count these either since we aren't there.
