SHARE Man shot after fight in South Shore home

Two people are in police custody after a fight at a South Shore home ended in a shooting, injuring a 42-year-old man.

About 1 a.m., two males knocked on the 42-year-old’s door in the 7700 block of South Shore Drive, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said. When the man opened his door, the two rushed in, and all three began to fight, police said. One of the males and the 42-year-old had been in a dispute earlier, Greer said.

One of the males ran off before a female entered the home and joined the fight, which eventually involved more people inside the home, Greer said. The female and the remaining male who had originally entered were hit with baseball bats during the brawl, Greer said.

Then, a third male armed with a gun entered the home, fired shots and struck the 42-year-old in his back before running off, Greer said. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where his condition was stable.

The male and female who were hit with a bat were taken to South Shore Hospital in police custody, where their conditions were also stable, Greer said. No charges had been filed early Monday.
