He saw someone stumble and fall near an SUV in the 6500 block of North Francisco Avenue on the Far North Side.

“Are you OK?” the man, who did not want to give his name, said he called out his window.

“No,” the wounded man replied back. “I’m not OK.”

In his apartment, the man called 911 but saw the victim get into a car and leave the area.

Chicago police say a 33-year-old man was walking in an alley around 12:15 a.m. Saturday when someone approached him and fired shots.

He took himself to Swedish Covenant Hospital but was transferred to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious condition with a gunshot wound to the chest, police said.
