A man was shot early Sunday in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side.

At 2:22 a.m., the 19-year-old was standing on the corner in the 8600 block of South Morgan when a black vehicle approached and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police. The vehicle then sped away.

The man was shot in the arm and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was listed in good condition, police said.
