Man Wounded In Homan Square Shooting, 2 Suspects In Custody

CHICAGO (CBS) — Charges are pending against two people after a man was shot early Wednesday in the Homan Square neighborhood on the West Side.

Officers on patrol at 1:39 a.m. heard “loud reports” from the 3300 block of West Harrison and arrived to find the 33-year-old man with gunshot wounds to the hip and both feet, according to Chicago Police. The man was able to give officers descriptions of the shooters, the vehicle they were in and the direction in which they had driven away.

The man was taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition, according to police.

Officers found a vehicle matching the victim’s description speeding onto the Eisenhower Expressway, police said. The vehicle’s occupants could be seen throwing weapons out the window.

The driver lost control and the vehicle crashed into a pole after exiting the expressway in the 2300 block of West Harrison, according to police. Two people got out of the vehicle and ran away, but were apprehended after a brief foot chase.

Investigators recovered two weapons and charges against the two suspects were pending Wednesday morning.
