A man was shot Tuesday morning in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

The 19-year-old was walking in the 1500 block of West 73rd Place about 9:50 a.m. when he heard shots and felt pain, police said.

He was shot in the buttocks, and was taken in good condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
