About five minutes earlier, a man was shot in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.

The 22-year-old man was shot in the head about 12:12 p.m. while he was exiting a store in the 10700 block of South Wentworth, police said. He was taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center. Police said the shooting is possibly gang-related.

Tuesday morning, a 15-year-old boy was hurt in a drive-by shooting in Chatham.

The teen was in the 8300 block of South Ellis about 8 a.m. when someone in a dark-colored minivan fired shots, striking him in the hand, police said. He was taken to Jackson Park Hospital and Medical Center, where he is listed in good condition. Police said the shooting may be gang-related.

Additionally, a Chicago Police captain was shot Tuesday evening in Englewood.

About 6 p.m., Capt. Ed Kulbida, the second in command in the Englewood District, suffered graze wounds to his head and back when shots were fired near 72nd and Lowe, according to a police source.

He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where a spokeswoman said his condition was stable. His injuries were not life-threatening, sources said.

A Chicago Police fugitive apprehension team, including U.S. Marshals, was in Englewood to try to arrest Daniel Brown, 42, a suspect wanted for attempted murder in Indianapolis, when the suspect opened fire from an apartment building, a source told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy told reporters late Tuesday: “We have one offender in custody and there’s apparently one who is DOA.

“At this point it’s unsure who’s who. We’re going to let the detectives do their investigation and take it from there,” he said. He said both were considered “offenders” in the standoff.

McCarthy said he did not know how the man died.

Before the 6-hour standoff ended, McCarthy said outside Stroger Hospital that police believe that the shooter is the wanted man, but “it’s not confirmed.”
