A man was shot and critically wounded Sunday morning in the South Chicago neighborhood.

The 34-year-old man was outside in the 8400 block of South Muskegon at 11:36 a.m. when someone approached from the gangway and fired shots, according to Chicago Police.

He was shot in the right arm and abdomen and taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

The shooting was the first in the city in approximately six hours. At 4:48 a.m., two people were shot in the East Garfield Park neighborhood, ending a spate of gun violence early Sunday that saw eight people shot in less than three hours.
