Man, 19, tells pair he’s not in a gang, then gets shot

A 19-year-old man was shot and wounded by two men who accosted him early Wednesday on the South Side, demanded to know what gang he’s in and shot him when he said he wasn’t in any gang, the police said.

It happened just before 12:30 a.m., according to the police, who said the teenager was walking in the 100 block of West 72nd Street in Park Manor when he was accosted.

He was taken with two gunshot wounds to the left leg, one to each wrist and one to the shoulder to Stroger Hospital.
