ALBANY PARK — Part of a Tuesday afternoon shootout in Albany Park that left a man hospitalized was caught on video by a neighbor’s home surveillance system.
A 16-year-old boy was shot twice while walking at 6:12 p.m. in the 4400 block of North Pulaski Road, police said. He was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was last listed in good condition.
A video from a home surveillance camera shows some of the events that led up to that shooting.
The video clip begins at 6:08 p.m. Tuesday and shows a dark colored car traveling south on Harding Avenue, near Sunnyside.
After the car passes, the home’s camera films two people, one in a white hoodie and another in a black hoodie, running south on Harding. At least 17 gunshots ring out. The person in the black hoodie appears to be holding a gun and firing at someone or something while continuing to run south.
The two people then cut through an alley and parking lot towards Pulaski Road before the camera loses sight of them and the clip ends.
The neighbor who shared the video with Block Club said he’s lived in his home for the past seven years without anything like this happening before.
After the shooting, police blocked off traffic around Montrose Avenue and Pulaski Road to treat the person who was wounded in the parking lot of the Wendy’s at 4412 N. Pulaski Road, the neighbor said.
No one is in custody and Area North detectives are still investigating. Police did not have any additional information regarding the shooting Wednesday night.
