Meahwhile, In Chicago....

From CWB Chicago:

West Loop man was shot when gang members opened fire on rivals who were robbing him

In a bizarre, only-in-Chicago twist, Chicago police now believe that a West Loop man suffered a gunshot wound Monday night after a group of gang members opened fire on members of a rival gang who were trying to rob him outside the Presidential Towers high-rise complex. According to a source:

The 52-year-old man, who lives in the four-tower complex at 555 West Madison, was walking into the building when three men walked up and tried to rob him at gunpoint around 11:22 p.m.

As he gave the men his wallet, a four-door sedan pulled up to the corner of Jefferson and Madison. Three gunmen emerged from the car and began shooting toward the robbers and the victim. One of the robbers returned fire.....
