- A DePaul University student was shot in the leg Monday night as he tried to run away from would-be robbers near the school's Lincoln Park campus, Chicago police said.
The 18-year-old student told police he was walking along North Sheffield Avenue near a 7-Eleven on North Lincoln Avenue around 11:45 p.m. when two men with a gun tried to rob him. Police said when he took off running, he was shot in the leg. The student drove himself to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. His injuries were not life-threatening, the university said in an alert. No one was in custody Tuesday.
This is the fourth time a DePaul student has been victimized near the school's Lincoln Park campus in the last three months. Most of the incidents were armed robberies.
And as usual, Channel 7 provides no description of these attackers or any of the previous attackers, so DePaul students and neighborhood residents will just have to guess at whom they should be wary and alert around.
