A man was shot Sunday afternoon in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

The 27-year-old was walking in the 5700 block of South Laflin at 12:20 p.m. when two people got out of a car and opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

The shooters got back in the car, which fled north on Laflin, police said.

The victim suffered a graze wound to the left foot and was taken to Holy Cross Hospital in good condition.
