Man shot in Belmont Cragin

A man was shot after another man intervened when he was arguing with his girlfriend early Sunday in the Northwest Side Belmont Cragin neighborhood.

The 20-year-old man was arguing with his girlfriend in the 5400 block of West Diversey Avenue at 4:10 a.m. when a male intervened, police said.

The two males began arguing, and the male shot the woman’s boyfriend multiple times, police said.

The 20-year-old was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in “stable” condition with gunshot wounds to his hand and torso, police said.

No one is in custody as Area North detectives investigate.
