CHICAGO (STMW) – Three men were shot near a bar in Englewood early Sunday.
Two of the men, 30 and 31, were at a bar in the 1100 block of West 63rd Street when four people on foot fired shots from outside around 1:45 a.m., striking the men through a window, said police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer.
Right after the shooting, the 30-year-old and his friend were headed for a hospital in the friend’s van when police stopped them for speeding in the 6400 block of South Elizabeth Street, Greer said. Officers called an ambulance when they saw the victim, and he was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he is in “stable” condition, Greer said.
The 31-year-old victim was also shot in the abdomen and taken from the bar to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, where he is listed in serious condition, Greer said.
A third man, 24, took himself to Christ Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his upper right back, where he is in “stable” condition. Greer said. The man told police he was part of the same shooting, but it’s still unknown whether he was inside the bar like the other two victims, Greer.
No one is in custody as Area South detectives investigate.
