Two tow truck operators were shot Monday morning on the West Side in the Garfield Park neighborhood.
The men were bringing a vehicle into a tow yard in the 4000 block of West Lake Street about 10:35 a.m. when an unknown offender began shooting at them, according to police News Affairs Officer John Henry.
One victim was standing outside the truck when he was shot and taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in critical condition. The other man was shot while sitting in the truck and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in “stable” condition, Henry said.
No motive or description of the shooter was immediately available.
No one was in custody early Tuesday and Harrison Area detectives are investigating.
