CHICAGO — A worker for the city of Chicago who was putting a Denver boot on a vintage auto was shot in the back after a confrontation with the car's owner.
Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says the Department of Revenue worker was in serious condition in Northwestern Memorial Hospital after the attack Monday in the South Chicago neighborhood.
Investigators say they are looking for the car's registered owner after the victim identified him as his attacker.
Bond said police recovered three .22-caliber shell casings believed to be from the gun used in the crime.
According to police, there has been a spike in violent crime in the South Chicago neighborhood. As a result of gun violence, the district has the city's highest murder rate so far this year.
As has been said before . . .
"This news story must be wrong, because Chicago bans guns!"
Can't have a gun if they're banned, right? So this must actually be a case of someone just throwing bullets by hand.

Depending on the kind of car, I'd understand.
Any vintage car worth shooting someone over is too valuable to be parked on the street.
... or a law against attempted murder.
... or a law against menacing/intimization.
... or a law against interfering with the legitimate business of an officer of the law (or "meter maid").
Daley: Are you listening, bub? Your city-wide, criminal-empowerment zone is not effective ... at least, assuming your goal is reduction of crime. Criminals have become emboldened to commit ANY crime imaginable. You've disarmed the people, and the people are getting injured and killed because of it. Daley? Daley ...?
i thought there were no guns in Chi town?
