Man wounded in gang-related shooting in Rogers Park

A 20-year-old man was critically wounded early Monday in a shooting near the CTA’s Red Line station at Howard Street, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Here is a portion of the Tribune story:

A 20-year-old man was shot and seriously wounded near a CTA train station on the city’s Far North Side.

The shooting happened about 3:30 a.m. in the 1600 block of West Howard Avenue, police said.

Police said the victim was walking down the street when a passing car slowed and the people inside asked the man his gang affiliation, said Officer John Mirabelli, a police spokesman.

The man said that he had none, prompting one of the men inside the vehicle to get out and open fire in the man’s direction, Mirabelli said.

The man, who was struck in his left side, then staggered to the Red Line’s Howard station, authorities said.
