A drive-by shooting left a man wounded in the West Garfield Park neighborhood early Saturday.

Just after 1 a.m., the 28-year-old was outside in the 4700 block of West Van Buren when someone in a passing silver vehicle shot him in the leg, according to Chicago Police.

The man later showed up at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was listed in fair condition, police said.
