Man Who Was Shot in the Head Drives Himself to Chicago Hospital

A 28-year-old man who was shot in the head drove himself to a hospital on Sunday, said police in Chicago.

The man, who was not identified, is currently in serious condition, officials told ABC7.

He arrived in a small SUV and admitted himself into Stroger Hospital at around midnight on Sunday with a gunshot wound to his head, according to the report.

Officials think he was driving around the 1600 block of West Ogden Avenue when he was shot in the head.

Police are now investigating the circumstances surrounding his shooting. The victim wasn’t able to provide details about the incident.

It’s not clear if the shooting was accidental or targeted.

The incident was among 13 shootings over the weekend across Chicago, according to figures compiled on Sunday afternoon by NBC5 in Chicago. At least one person was killed.

At around 8:30 a.m. Sunday in the 1200 block of West Garfield Boulevard, a man was walking across the street when two suspects approached him and shot him several times in the chest, police said. Police were called to the scene and found the victim lying unresponsive on the pavement, according to the station.

He was later pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center, authorities said.

So far in 2020, 337 people have been shot in Chicago, which is 72 more than during the same time period last year, according to a tally provided by the Chicago Tribune. Seventy-four people have been killed in gun violence this year, says, which compiles media reports of shootings and fatalities in Chicago.

Last month during one weekend, 11 children were among 26 people who were shot across the city, although none of the children died, police said at the time.
