Three men shot on South, West sides

At least three men were shot on the South and West sides overnight, according to Chicago police.

A 25-year-old man sitting in a car near the intersection of 72nd Street and Western Avenue exchanged words with someone in another car, who opened fire about 12:05 a.m., police said.

The man was shot in the hand and driven to Holy Cross Hospital, police said.
A 26-year-old man was standing in an alley behind the 3900 block of South Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive just before midnight when someone with a gun approached him and demanded money.

The two fought and the man was shot in the index finger on his left hand, police said. It’s unclear if the man trying to rob him got anything. [No: Nickeas had no business writing, “The two fought.” This was not a “fight,” as if two unarmed men decided to duke it out over baseball or a woman. Nickeas should have written something like, “The intended victim defended himself against the would-be robber.”]

The 26-year-old walked into Mercy Hospital and Medical Center and is in good condition, police said.

About five minutes later, a 25-year-old man was walking on Harrison Street about two blocks east of Pulaski Road when someone opened fire. He was shot in the thigh and a family member drove him to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, where he's listed in good condition, police said.

Nobody is in custody in connection with the shootings, police said, and detectives are investigating.

Four others narrowly escaped an attack in the Rogers Park neighborhood overnight. They were in a van stopped at the intersection of Morse and Greenview avenues when an SUV drove by, made a U-turn and several people got out of the car and started shooting at them, police said.

None of them were shot but the driver of the van, while trying to speed away, crashed into several cars, police said. [See what I meant, with poor shooting?]

Nobody is in custody, and the van's four occupants were taken to area hospitals with minor injuries, police said.
