A man was wounded in a Wicker Park neighborhood drive-by shooting early Saturday.

The 25-year-old was outside in the 1200 block of North Milwaukee about 1:40 a.m. when someone in a passing black vehicle shot him in the right foot, police said.

He took himself to Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, where he was listed in good condition, police said.
