A man with a gunshot wound to the hip walked into a South Side hospital Saturday evening, more than 14 hours after the Armour Square neighborhood shooting.

The 18-year-old walked into Mercy Hospital and Medical Center about 5 p.m., where he was listed in good condition, police said.

The man told detectives he was in a vehicle with friends about 12:30 a.m. exiting Lake Shore Drive onto westbound 31st Street, when a grey minivan followed and someone inside fired shots, police said.

He was shot in the hip but decided to seek medical attention later in the day, police said.

Investigators found a crime scene in the 2900 block of South La Salle Street, but it was not immediately known how that location was connected to the man’s story.

Additional details were not available as Area Central detectives investigate.
