Man Shot In Groin, Woman Shot In Leg In Garfield Park

CHICAGO (STMW) — A man and woman were shot early Sunday in a home in the West Side Garfield Park neighborhood.

The shooting happened about 1:50 a.m. in the 500 block of North Avers Avenue when a group of males fired shots at the two, police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.

Initial reports received by police indicated that there was a private party at that location and some males were attempting to get into the party, police said.

The 18-year-old woman was struck in the leg and taken in good condition to Norwegian-American Hospital, and the 41-year-old man was shot in the groin and taken in “stable” condition to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, Mirabelli said.

No one is in custody Sunday morning and Harrison Area detectives are investigating.

      I had 5 and 10 I was hopping their aim would improve but it just goes to show no matter how much you try or practice they get they just can’t learn anything. You can’t teach a wild animal such as a coon anything all they know is garbage can breakfast and leave a mess

      Hey Leroy, I heard Hilter killed 6 million! If he had killed your grandfather or if your mother would’ve swallowed we would not be hearing you!

        What the hell kind of sick twisted individual are you to make such an offensive comment? Most of us look forward to Leroy’s insightful opinions. If you don’t like it, don’t read them!

  • Leroy Goldberg

    Whatever the numbers the way I see it we are all winners if you know what I mean.

  • Just the Average Joe

    Glad he got that groin, hopefully it will put a stop to the baby maker.
