Oak Park police are investigating a shooting that took place at about 5:45 p.m., Tuesday near Ontario Street and Ridgeland. One person suffered a minor wound but refused medical attention. At this time, police could not confirm if the shooting was targeted or an incident of road rage.

According to witness statements made to police, the driver of a white sedan pulled up alongside a gray sedan that was stopped in the westbound lane of Ontario at Ridgeland. The diver reportedly leaned out of the car window and opened fire at the gray sedan. The white sedan was last seen fleeing northbound on Ridgeland

While five shots were fired, the woman driving the gray sedan sustained no injuries. She was taken to a local hospital for stress related issues, according to police. A second victim who was stopped behind the gray sedan at the time of the incident received a graze wound to the hip but declined medical attention.

Police describe the alleged offender driving the white sedan as a male in his late 20s or wearing 30s and wearing a gray sweatshirt.
