Man, 22, shot in Rogers Park

A 22-year-old man was shot Monday afternoon in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side.

About 4:10 p.m., a gunman approached the man in the 2000 block of West Birchwood and opened fire, striking the man in the chest and abdomen, police said.

The man was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, where his condition had stabilized.

Police added the shooting did not appear to be related to one that occurred three hours earlier in the 7600 block of North Ashland.

In that shooting, a 22-year-old man was shot about 1:10 p.m. and was taken in critical condition to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston.
