A man who was seriously injured Friday afternoon in the Northwest Side Jefferson Park neighborhood may have shot himself, according to Chicago Police.

The 45-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the groin in an alley about 1 p.m. in the 4800 block of West Argyle, police said. He was taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston in serious condition.

The man, who police called a documented gang member, was being uncooperative with investigators and “cannot say” how he was shot, police said.

Police said his injury is “indicative” of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
