A security guard shot and critically wounded a man outside a Lawndale neighborhood liquor store early Saturday on the West Side.

About 1:30 a.m., the 27-year-old man threw a brick and a bottle at the 55-year-old man working security when they got into a fight outside the store in the 3800 block of West Roosevelt, according to Chicago Police.

The guard then shot the younger man in the chest and abdomen, police said at the time. He was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.

The guard was questioned by Area North detectives early Saturday, but was later released without charges, police said. As of Monday morning, no one was in custody in connection with the shooting.
