OAK LAWN Ill. (WLS) -- A man was found wounded from an apparent road rage shooting in an Oak Lawn parking lot Tuesday night, police said.

An Oak Lawn police sergeant was driving in the area of 107th Street and Cicero Avenue when he heard two gunshots fired.

A man in his 40s with two gunshot wounds was found by police in a business parking lot, police said. He was transported to a local hospital in unknown condition.

Police from Oak Lawn and other nearby areas attempted to stop the suspect's vehicle, but it escaped at a high rate of speed and ignored traffic signals, police said.
