A man was shot early Wednesday in the Homan Square neighborhood on the West Side.

Officers on patrol at 1:39 a.m. heard “loud reports” from the 3300 block of West Harrison and arrived to find the 33-year-old man with gunshot wounds to the hip and both feet, according to Chicago Police. The man was able to give officers descriptions of the shooters, the vehicle they were in and the direction in which they had driven away.

The victim was taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition, according to police.

Officers found a vehicle matching the victim’s description speeding onto the Eisenhower Expressway, police said. The vehicle’s occupants were seen throwing weapons out the window.

The driver lost control and the vehicle crashed into a pole after getting off the expressway in the 2300 block of West Harrison, according to police. Two people got out of the vehicle and ran away, but were taken into custody after a brief foot chase.

One of the people was released without charges, and the other person was cited for traffic violations which resulted in the crash before they were taken into custody, police said. No charges have been filed in the shooting as of Sunday morning.
