An Evanston man was shot early Saturday morning at a Skokie hotel, police said.

The 24-year-old man was shot in the leg shortly before 2:30 a.m. at the Rodeway Inn, 9333 Skokie Blvd., police said. Witnesses told officers they heard yelling and possible fighting from a party in a hotel room.

The man was taken to a nearby hospital but refused to cooperate with officers, according to police.

When officers arrived at the hotel, dozens of people were exiting its parking lot, police said. Officers identified other people involved in the incident, but, like the gunshot victim, they refused to offer any information about what happened, according to police.

Skokie police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call them at 847-982-5900 or contact their 24-hour, anonymous tip line at 847-933-TIPS.
