Man shot in South Loop

A man was shot after a confrontation in a South Loop nightclub early Friday.

The 31-year-old bumped into another unknown male while in the nightclub in the 2100 block of South Wabash about 3:15 a.m. and the two exchanged words, police said.

As the man was walking through a nearby parking lot a short time later, he was shot in the chest, police said.

He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition had stabilized, police said.

Investigators were not sure if the shooter was the same male the victim had previously encountered, police said.
