A food delivery driver was shot during an attempted robbery Sunday night in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

About 8:05 p.m., the 40-year-old driver was approached by a male with a handgun after getting out of his vehicle in the 4400 block of West Carroll, according to Chicago Police.

The driver ran into his vehicle, but the suspect opened the vehicle’s door and demanded money, police said. He then fired a shot at the driver as he drove off, striking him in the leg. The suspect then ran off.

The victim was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition stabilized, police said.
