60-year-old man shot during attempted robbery in Englewood

A 60-year-old man was shot during an attempted robbery early Sunday in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

He was in a vehicle at 2:04 a.m. waiting at a stop light in the 5900 block of South Normal when two males, one of whom was armed with a handgun, entered his vehicle and attempted to rob him, according to Chicago Police.

A struggle ensued and the man was subsequently shot in the right hip, police said. The would-be robbers then ran away.

The man drove himself to Roseland Community Hospital and was transferred to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
