Man Shot On DePaul Campus During Robbery Attempt

A 21-year-old man told police that he was shot during a robbery attempt in a DePaul University parking lot around 8:15 Sunday evening.

Officially, police said that “the man was standing in an alley when a male offender approached and attempted to rob him. The victim then heard a shot and felt pain.”

The victim was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital by a friend. He is said to be in good condition with a gunshot wound to his left thigh.

According to sources, the victim reported that he was in a DePaul University parking lot near the Fullerton Red Line when he was attacked in the 900 block of West Fullerton.

A police source said the victim described the offenders as a Hispanic man wearing a red jacket with marks on the front in the company of a short Hispanic female. They fled the scene in a gray or gold RAV4, the victim said.

DePaul University did not respond to an overnight request for information.

  1. Who in their right mind would be out at 8:15pm?!

  2. Parents look for two things when they send their kids away to school. A good education and safety. This obviously will have to be reported by DePaul. Let's see if they catch the perps if they are standing members of the revolving door club of the beloved Chicago justice system.

  3. So what really happened?

  4. Rahm's Chicago, and the values he's instilled upon it (even though he is from Winnetka and has Sadam Hussein's Palace Guard in front of his house). Pussy.

  5. "The victim then heard a shot and felt pain." in an alley. My money is on a depaul kid buying dope.
