Chicago police have issued an alert about three recent armed robberies in Northwest Side neighborhoods, including one where the victim was shot.

In each incident, someone was approached by up to three people — described only as males — who flashed a gun and demanded their property, Chicago police said in the community alert.

In one incident, the victim refused to comply and was shot.

The men were seen fleeing in a light blue 1992 Toyota Camry with an Illinois plate BG91347 or an older model white Ford Explorer, police said.
