A man was shot and another wounded by shattered glass during a shooting Wednesday afternoon in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood.

About 2:30 p.m., a 35-year-old man was in the 4000 block of West Division when he was approached by a male who opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

The man ran across the street and was struck in the chest, hip and leg, police said. He was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.

A stray bullet struck the window of a passing vehicle, shattering the glass, which cut the 23-year-old driver’s head and arms, police said. He was taken in good condition to Mount Sinai Hospital. Police initially reported he suffered a graze wound to the head, but later said he was not shot.

The man who fired shots ran off in an unknown direction, police said.

No. 70 Division buses were temporarily rerouted in both directions near Division and Grand at Pulaski, according to a CTA alert.
