A man was grazed by a bullet Friday night in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

The 18-year-old was walking in the 800 block of North Lavergne about 10 p.m. when a dark-colored vehicle drove by and someone inside fired shots, police said.

The man ran home and didn’t immediately realize he’d suffered a graze wound the left leg, police said.

About noon Saturday, he walked into Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was treated and released, police said.

A police source said the man is a documented gang member.
