Northeast Times: Three Victims, No Profit

From the Northeast Times:

Three local men were wounded during a shooting at a Rhawnhurst apartment building last Saturday.

The three victims are brothers, all in their early- to mid-20s, according to Capt. Jack McGinnis of Northeast Detectives. At about 5:30 p.m., the men went to an apartment building on the 7500 block of Algon Ave. to collect a debt for prior contract work, McGinnis said.

As they entered the building, a fourth man followed them inside and pulled a gun on them in an apparent robbery attempt. The suspect shot all three men then fled without their money, investigators believe.

All three men were hospitalized at area hospitals and are expected to recover from their wounds.

The assailant was described as a black male of Latino heritage. The victims believe he is Dominican because of the Spanish dialect that he spoke.

He is age 22 to 24 and 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall. He has a medium build, clean shaven face and short black hair. He wore a white T-shirt and jeans and carried a .40-caliber silver semiautomatic pistol.

He fled in an unknown direction.
