A man was seriously wounded in a shooting early Tuesday near a Target store in the South Loop.

The 18-year-old victim was shot in the abdomen and buttocks at 12:05 a.m. in the 1100 block of South Clark, according to Chicago Police. He was found by passers-by, who then called police.

The man was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in serious condition, police said.

Most of that block is occupied by a Target store and its parking structure at 1154 S. Clark.

According to Target spokeswoman Erika Winkel, the victim is not a Target employee.

The store provided video footage to investigators and is working with police, Winkel said.

Area Central detectives are investigating.
