A man was shot early Thursday in the Marquette Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

About 12:20 a.m., the 37-year-old was walking south in the 6300 block of South Washtenaw when he was confronted by two armed males who opened fire, according to Chicago Police. The shooters then ran in the opposite direction of the victim.

The man was shot in the right arm and buttocks and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
