Police are asking the public for information about a shooting that left a man injured Tuesday night in west suburban Aurora.

Two 18-year-old men were sitting in a parked car about 9 p.m. in a driveway in the 1900 block of Bayview Lane, according to a statement from Aurora police. A group of males walked up and fired into the car before getting into a dark-colored, four-door vehicle and driving away westbound.

One of the men was struck in the shooting and taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound that was not thought to be life-threatening, police said. The other man was not injured.
