CHICAGO - A man was shot during a carjacking early Monday during widespread looting in the Loop.

When the man put the car in drive and began to speed away, the gunman fired shots and struck him in the back, police said.
The 20-year-old went to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where his condition stabilized.
About two hours later, a security guard was wounded in a shooting shortly in the 400 block of North Clark Street, according to Chicago Fire Department officials. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition.
