The shooting is being investigated as a possible road-rage incident, a police source said.

The 41-year-old was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center in good condition, police said. No one is in custody.

The dark vehicle remained parked on the street as detectives shined a flashlight into it Thursday morning, illuminating a smashed-out window.
