Man shot during carjacking in South Loop

A man was shot during a carjacking Friday night in the South Loop on the Near South Side.
The man, 30, was sitting in his white Jaguar waiting for someone in the 100 block of East Cullerton Street about 8:55 p.m. when one of five gunmen shot him in the thigh and dragged him out of the car after he refused to get out, Chicago police said.
He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was in good condition, police said.
The gunmen fled the scene in the Jaguar, officials said.
No one was in custody.
The attempted robbery on Memorial Day happened a year after former Chicago Police Supt. Terry Hillard was shot with a paintball gun in his front yard.
That level of violence — the most shooting victims since 2016 — was “intolerable,” Mayor Brandon Johnson said Tuesday.
Rosalynn Carter, 95, is resting at home with her husband of nearly 77 years, the Carter Center announced. Jimmy Carter, 98, has been receiving hospice care since February.
“If I didn’t give up two runs, that’s a tie game,” Liam Hendriks said. “We are looking at a chance to win and continuing to play.”
William Hair, 35, was gunned down early Saturday in the 500 block of West Surf Street in Lake View — one of at least three shootings in the neighborhood over the Memorial Day weekend.
