Police: 1 Killed, 1 Wounded In Old Town Shooting

CHICAGO (CBS) — Two men were shot — one fatally — Sunday morning in the Old Town neighborhood, police said.

About 4 a.m., the men, ages 20 and 30, were shot when someone walked out of a fast food restaurant and open fired in the 100 block of West Division, according to Chicago Police. The shooter got into a Chevrolet Tahoe and drove away south on Clark Street.

Both men were shot in the back and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said. The 20-year-old died and the older man was in serious condition. The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the death.

The block where the shooting occurred was the target of a recent undercover drug investigation, according to a statement from Ald. Brian Hopkins (2nd). The undercover operation resulted in 16 arrests for drug and robbery offenses. The alderman said he was working with local businesses to collect surveillance video of the shooting to aid police.
