Man shot in Auburn Gresham

A man was wounded in a shooting Tuesday morning in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood on the South Side.

The 37-year-old man was siting in a parked vehicle in a parking lot in the 8400 block of South Parnell at 5:18 a.m. when someone drove up in a black vehicle, got out and fired at him, police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada said. He was shot in the left arm and tried to drive away before crashing the vehicle into a nearby building.

The man then got out of the vehicle and made his way to a relative’s home on foot, Estrada said. The relative drove him to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was listed in good condition.
