Man Hospitalized After Shooting In Portage Park

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A man was hospitalized after he was shot early Saturday morning on Chicago's Northwest Side.

Police say the man was in his car in Portage Park in the 5100 block of West Agatite Avenue - a block north of Montrose and Milwaukee avenues - around 3 a.m. when a man with a face tattoo walked up to his car.

The man asked for money, and the victim drove off.

That's when shots were fired. One bullet hit the victim in the waist.

The victim's friend drove him to Community First Medical Center where police found his car out front. He was later transferred to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center and he was reported in critical condition.

Police are still looking for the shooter with the face tattoo.
