A man told Chicago police he was shot Saturday morning while he was filling his car with fuel at a West Rogers Park gas station, Chicago Breaking News is reporting.
Here is the story from Chicago Breaking News:
A 25-year-old man told police he was shot while pumping gas this morning at a West Rogers Park service station — but videotapes at the gas station don’t seem to show anyone being injured there, a station manager said.
The man walked into St. Francis Hospital in Evanston about 3:45 a.m. and said he had been shot at a gas station at Touhy and Western avenues about 10 minutes earlier, a Rogers Park watch commander said, citing a preliminary report.
The man, who was shot in the leg, told officers who came to take a report on the incident that he had been pumping gas at the station — the Touhy & Western Marathon — when he heard a shot and felt pain, according to the report.
The victim provided little additional information. And a manager of the gas station, reached by phone this morning, said he had reviewed videotapes and spoken to employees who had been on-duty at the 24-hour gas station, and has been unable to verify anything about someone being shot there this morning.
“I’m looking and looking, and I don’t see anything–I looked from 3 to 4, went back to 2, then to 4, nothing,” on station surveillance video, said the manager, who didn’t want to be named.
