ROGERS PARK — One person was killed and three others were wounded in two shootings Wednesday in Rogers Park.
Just before 9 p.m., three men were standing outside Experanca Sports Bar, 6651 N. Clark St., when someone fired shots, police and Ald. Maria Hadden (49th) said.
A 29-year-old man was shot in his chest and was taken to St. Francis Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
A 43-year-old man was shot in his abdomen and was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital, and a 48-year-old man was shot in his face before being brought to St. Francis Hospital, police said. They were in fair condition.
The victims were targeted in the shooting, and the shooter appears to know the victims, Hadden wrote in a post on social media. It is the seventh homicide this year in the 49th Ward, which covers Rogers Park, she said.
City officials will determine if Experanca Sports Bar played any role in the shooting, Hadden said.
“The proliferation of guns and the carelessness with which people use them to settle personal disputes is out of control,” Hadden wrote in the post.
Just after 10 p.m., a 48-year-old man was walking in the 1600 block of West Howard Street when another man walked up and fired shots, police said.
The 48-year-old was shot in his left foot and was taken to St. Francis Hospital in fair condition, police said.
No arrests have been made in either shooting.
