AVONDALE — A 19-year-old man was shot during an attempted robbery Friday afternoon in Avondale, police said.
The shooting happened around 3:45 p.m. in the 3200 block of North Drake Avenue, according to Steve Rusanov, a Chicago Police spokesman.
The 19-year-old victim was in the street when a robber came up to him, took out a gun and demanded the victim’s belongings, Rusanov said. There was a struggle, and the robber shot the victim in the neck.
The victim was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital. Police could not provide his condition, saying only that he was “stable.”
