A man was shot repeatedly at a gas station early Monday in west suburban Oak Park.

The shooting happened in the parking lot of the Shell station at 401 W. Madison at 1:42 a.m., according to a statement on the village of Oak Park website.

The victim, a 20-year-old Chicago man, told investigators he had walked to the entrance doors of the station to pay cash for a gas purchase, and was waiting outside the locked doors for the attendant to return when someone approached and fired several shots, according to the statement.

He was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was scheduled to undergo surgery, according to the web post. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Investigators believe the victim was followed to the station from Chicago, but the investigation is ongoing.
