One in custody after two shot in Belmont Cragin, shots fired by Chicago Police

One person has been taken into custody after two men were shot early Monday in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood, prompting a brief police chase on the Northwest Side.

At 2:53 a.m., the two men, ages 28 and 30, were both shot during argument with someone outside in the 5700 block of West Grand, according to Chicago Police.

The 28-year-old was shot in the abdomen and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said. The older man suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the back and was taken in serious condition to Loyola University Medical Center.
When officers responded to the scene of the shooting, a male ran away and a foot chase ensued, police said. Shots were fired from police officers in the 2700 block of North Major, but no one was struck and the suspect was subsequently taken into custody.
A weapon was recovered and charges were pending early Monday, police said.
