Person in Store With Concealed Carry License Shoots Man Causing Disturbance: CPD

A 55-year-old man "causing a disturbance outside a retail store" was shot Monday by a person with a license to carry a concealed weapon in the Tri-Taylor Neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, police said.

The person who opened fire was a patron inside the store, police said. The incident occurred about 5:30 p.m. in the 0-100 block of South Western Avenue.

The 55-year-old was hit in the leg and was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital in critical condition.

Police originally said the man who was shot was not the intended target, but later issued an update stating that he was in fact who the shooter was aiming for.

Police tape and squad cars with lights flashing could be seen outside of a T-Mobile phone store and a sandwich shop.

Authorities did not say which store the shooting occurred in, but officers could be seen inside of the T-Mobile. Officers stood infront of a broken window at the phone store. 

No other details were immediately available.
