SHARE Man hurt in Park Manor shooting

A man was shot Sunday afternoon in the Park Manor neighborhood on the South Side, ten minutes after another nearby shooting.

The man, 21, told investigators he was standing on the sidewalk in the 6900 block of South King Drive at 3:30 p.m. when someone fired shots out of a passing light-blue vehicle, police said. He walked into St. Bernard Hospital with a leg wound and was in good condition, police said.

Detectives are trying to determine whether the man was actually shot in the earlier Park Manor incident, which happened at 3:20 p.m. in the 7300 block of South Vernon, police said. That shooting left two people wounded, including a 15-year-old boy.
