Uber Driver Among 2 Wounded in Chicago Shooting

An Uber driver and another man were shot early Saturday in the Hanson Park neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

About 3:15 a.m., two gunmen walked up to a 22-year-old man who was walking in the 2200 block of North Latrobe and started shooting, striking him in the lower back, according to Chicago Police.

The gunfire also hit a 37-year-old man in the left thigh as he drove nearby. A police source said he was driving for Uber.

The younger man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, the older to Illinois Masonic Medical Center. Their conditions were stabilized, police said.

No one was in custody for the shooting, which was thought to be gang-related.
