2 Shot On Busy Broadway In Edgewater

CHICAGO (CBS) — Two men were shot and wounded early Thursday on busy Broadway in the Edgewater neighborhood, just a few blocks from the Loyola University campus.

The men, ages 26 and 29, were walking in the 6100 block of North Broadway – between Glenlake and Granville avenues – when they were shot around 2:40 a.m., police said.

The 26-year-old was shot in the buttocks and the 29-year-old was shot in the foot.

Both were taken in good condition to nearby hospitals, one to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston and the other Weiss Memorial Hospital, police said.

No one was reported in custody in connection to the shooting as of late Thursday morning.

The Sun-Times Media Wire contributed to this report.

    I wonder if the shooter was wearing a hoodie?

    Cops should just not worry about this, if they want to get aggressive and look for suspects they could be accussed of racial profiling.

    or maybe theyuse the same logic the TSA does and pull over senior citizens driving buicks or soccer moms driving mini vans-oh wait a minute these people are not likely to shoot someone-Or they could chase down nerdy students wearing khaki pants with sweater vests and ties-no on second though they are not likely to shoot someone either.

    I guess the only solution is to ignore the crime since following suspects wearing baggy pants, hoodies, tilted baseball caps and such is not politically correct and who can stomach another ridiculous theatrical performance by Bobby Rush.

    Mugabe in Africa blamed the white man as being unfair to the black man and he ran them out-Zimbabwe used to be the breadbasket of the region feeding millions and now? I guess having those white farmers wasn’t so bad after all-at least that what all the starving people are thinking now…..
