A 29-year-old man was critically wounded Saturday night in a shooting in Logan Square on the Northwest Side.
He was on the sidewalk about 9 p.m., when he was approached by a vehicle in the 3700 block of West McLean Avenue, a person got out and fired shots, Chicago police said.
The shooting happened in front of an apartment complex located in the middle of the residential street, and as officers searched for evidence, including a possible weapon, neighbors watched from their porches and open windows.
At least four shell casings could be seen inside the crime scene, which stretched for half a block.
A married couple said they were returning home when they saw commotion.
“We usually hear about shootings about a block away from here, or in the alleys a block away, it has never made it to our front yard like this,” the man said.
“I can’t say I’m shocked, as soon as it gets warm the shooters come outside,” the woman said.
The 29-year-old man was shot in the leg and armpit and was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition.
No one was in custody Saturday night as police investigated.
