Windows were also shot out at two nearby buildings, according to witnesses.

“Nuts, huh?” nearby resident Yehuda Rothschild‎ said. “This is the third [shooting] in the last year that I was right there for.”

Cops said the victim, who lives in the West Side’s Austin neighborhood, is not cooperating with their investigation. He was reported in good condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

Arrest records show that the victim was charged with DUI in the 3100 block of North Lake Shore Drive last March and theft of labor or services in the Loop two years before that.
