(CBS) — Four people were shot Wednesday night near the Wilson CTA station and Truman College in the Uptown neighborhood.
The shooting happened about 8:15 p.m. in the 1100 block of West Wilson. Four people were wounded and taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital, according to Chicago Police.
Police told WBBM two men got out of a light-colored SUV and began shooting at two people near Wilson and Broadway.
Two victims, a 17-year-old and a 56-year-old were taken by ambulance in critical to serious condition. Two other two shooting victims self-transported to the same hospital.
CPD Deputy Chief Al Nagode said it appears the shooters were specifically aiming at at least one of the victims.
“One of our subjects that went to Illinois Masonic is known to the police and has long interaction with the police in this area. He is known to our officers,” Nagode said.
CBS 2 spoke to a woman who said her boyfriend was one of those shot and a student at Truman College, who got off the train to see the scene.
CBS: Any reason on why he was shot or what happened?
“No he was just a customer. To my knowledge it was not gang related,” she said.
“It’s kind of sad that I am getting off the train, getting ready to go to my house and I can’t even walk to get to my apartment safe,” said Jessica Ingram, who lives in the neighborhood. “It’s kind of crazy.”
The conditions of the four victims are unknown. Area North detectives were investigating.
