Man shot across street from alderman’s office on North Side - Alderman asked the man...Did you vote early? Care to sign an absentee ballot?


A man was shot in the left calf Monday afternoon across the street from the office of a North Side alderman.

Police said the shooting took place around 2:20 p.m. in the 4500 block of North Broadway Street in the Uptown neighborhood.

That’s the same block as Ald. James Cappleman’s 46th Ward office.

In a statement, Cappleman said the shooter fired three shots across the street from his office near the intersection of Wilson and Broadway. The shooter missed his intended target and hit another man in the calf, Cappleman said, adding that the shooter fled on foot and left his vehicle.

The first-term alderman said he would meet with police officials Tuesday to discuss public safety concerns.

“As summer approaches, I will continue to work with the police to send a clear message that violence will not be tolerated in the 46th Ward,” Cappleman wrote.

Cappleman said police told him the gunshot victim is recovering.
