Man shot in violent carjacking by group in the South Loop

CHICAGO - A man was shot in a violent carjacking by a group of men in the South Loop neighborhood tonight, authorities said.



The incident occurred just before 9:00 p.m. in the 100 block of E. Cullerton Street in the South Loop neighborhood on the city's Near South Side. This location is where E. Cullerton Street meets S. Michigan Avenue, reportedly near the Second Presbyterian Church at that intersection.

Police said a 30-year-old man was sitting in his white Jaguar waiting for someone when he was approached by five unidentified male offenders all armed with handguns.

One of the five offenders demanded the victim exit his vehicle but the 30-year-old victim refused. The offender then shot the victim once in the thigh and dragged him out of the vehicle.

The five offenders jumped into the victim’s white Jaguar and fled.

The victim was transported to Northwestern Hospital where he is listed in good condition.

There is no one in custody and Area Three detectives are investigating.
