A 31-year-old man was critically wounded in a shooting early Sunday on the Near West Side.

The man suffered gunshot wounds to the abdomen, chest and left leg and was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital, police said.

No one has been taken into custody in connection with the shooting as of early Sunday. Area Central detectives are investigating.
