Man shot in West Pullman

A man was shot early Monday in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side.

About 1:05 a.m., the 22-year-old was entering his vehicle in the 11700 block of South Prairie when he saw a male wearing dark clothing walking toward him, police said. The man drove away and heard gunfire.

He realized he’d been shot in the upper back and drove himself to Roseland Community Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
