A City of Chicago worker putting a Denver boot on a vintage Buick coupe was shot in the back Monday morning after a confrontation with the car's owner.
The Department of Revenue worker was in serious condition in Northwestern Memorial Hospital after the 10:35 a.m. attack in the South Chicago neighborhood.
The 35-year-old revenue worker was booting the car when a man who claimed to be the owner attacked him with a stick. After they "exchanged words," the attacker ran down an alley, but then he re-emerged with a gun and shot at the worker, wounding him in the small of the back.
