A man who was naked and causing a “disturbance” outside a Near West Side store Monday night, prompting a concealed carry permit holder to shoot him, has been released without charges.

The 55-year-old man, who was naked except for his socks, caused a “disturbance” about 5:30 p.m. Monday outside the retail store in the first block of South Western Avenue, according to Chicago Police.

The man broke a glass and was acting menacingly toward others when the concealed carry permit holder fired a shot, striking the man in the leg, police said.

The 55-year-old was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said at the time.

The shooter was questioned by investigators and released without being charged, police said.

Police also initially reported that charges were pending against the 55-year-old man, but as of Thursday morning he had been released without charges. Area North detectives were investigating.
