A Chicago man was shot in his car this afternoon at the corner of

Austin Boulevard
Roosevelt Road
after an apparent altercation with a pedestrian.

A 21-year-old man was southbound on Austin and stopped at the traffic light at Roosevelt at about 2:40 p.m., according to Oak Park police.

Reportedly, a man walking north on Austin exchanged words with the driver before firing multiple shots at his vehicle. The driver was struck at least once.

He was transported to LoyolaMedicalCenter on advanced life support, according to the Oak Park Fire Department. Authorities could not provide a medical condition Thursday evening.

The man police believe to be the shooter was described as being in jeans and wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt. No further description was available.

Oak Park police are in contact with police departments in Chicago, Berwyn and Cicero. The investigation is ongoing and no other details will be released tonight, Sgt. Roger Grivetti said.
