We can now add another shooting to the list of over a dozen gun crimes that have been reported in Chicago and surrounding suburbs over the last five days.

Two men were shot and seriously wounded while sitting in a tow-truck at a gas station in the Lakeview neighborhood early this morning.

The Tribune reported that the men, tow truck drivers for separate firms, were sitting in the front seat of a truck in the 3600 block of North Ashland Avenue about 3:40 a.m. when a gunman approached and “fired several rounds into the truck,’’ said Town Hall District Police Lt. Jeffrey Hoffmann.
