Officer Thomas Sweeney, a police spokesman, said the assailants demanded the man’s wallet.
He was alone then; he later returned with a second bicyclist.“For some kids to do this ...I don’t know how old they was but they look like teenagers.It's a damn shame," Askew said.“It's just a gamble that they get a few dollars; your life isn’t worth more than a few dollars to them,” he said.“The most you looking at getting is 10, 20 dollars, something like that, and you don’t value a human life more than that?In the 10 years Willie Askew had a surveillance camera pointed at the 7000 block of South California Avenue, he’d never caught any criminal activity.That changed early Tuesday afternoon when a 71-year-old Marquette Park neighbor was shot while watering his lawn, police said.
In a video Askew provided to the Tribune, two young men on bicycles pass the man standing just off the sidewalk in front of his home.One of the riders circles back, gets off the bike and starts wrestling with the victim, the garden hose apparently spraying the robber during the struggle.The robber appears to fire at the man as he falls to the ground, then goes through his pockets before getting back on the bike and riding off.The victim gets up and starts walking to his home, then goes to a neighbor's home while holding his abdomen.He later was taken by good Samaritans to a hospital where he underwent surgery, said neighbor and 69/70 Calfair Block Club President Loisteen Walker.Walker on Wednesday said her neighbor, whose name has not been released by authorities, was in stable condition.
