GARFIELD PARK — Two men shot someone then stole from the victim’s pockets late Thursday, police said.

At 11:11 p.m., the victim, a 22-year-old man, was standing in an alley in the 600 block of North St. Louis Avenue when two men walked up to him and fired shots, police said.

The attackers then went through the man’s pockets, took his money and ran off, police said.

The 22-year-old was hit in his left arm and he was taken to Norwegian American Hospital, where his condition was not available but he listed as “stable,” police said.

No one was in custody.
