A man struck by a hit-and-run driver while running from gunfire early Monday in Portage Park on the Northwest Side.

The man was shot at near a bar in the 3400 block of North Cicero Avenue around 2:10 a.m., Chicago police said. The gunman missed him and ran away on foot.

While the man ran from the gunfire, he tried crossing Cicero Avenue one block south and was stuck by a gray late-model Jeep Grand Cherokee, police said.

The driver in the car didn’t stop and fled the scene, authorities said. The vehicle was last seen going east on School Street toward Keating Avenue.

The man, 42, was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition, police said.

Police asked anyone with information to call Major Accident Investigation Unit detectives at (312) 745-4521.
