CHICAGO -- A man was critically wounded after being shot by a bicyclist early Monday on Chicago's North Side, police said.
Three men riding bicycles approached a group of men standing on a sidewalk in the 1700 block of West Howard Street in Rogers Park at 1:40 a.m. and asked them "what are you about," said police spokeswoman Patrice Harper.
One of the bicyclists then opened fire, striking one man in the abdomen, Harper said. The three bicyclists then fled, she said.
No one was in custody Monday afternoon, Harper said.
Officials at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston said the wounded man underwent surgery but would not discuss his condition Monday.
