A man was critically wounded in a Calumet Heights neighborhood drive-by shooting Thursday afternoon on the South Side.

The 35-year-old was standing outside in the 9200 block of South Harper at 2:57 p.m. when a light-colored car drove by and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police. The car then sped away.

The man suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the abdomen and buttocks and was taken in critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

A police source said the man is a documented gang member.
