A man was seriously wounded in a drive-by shooting Friday afternoon in the South Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

The 36-year-old was standing on the sidewalk about 1:25 p.m. in the 4900 block of West Augusta when a white van pulled up and someone inside opened fire, striking him in the leg, according to Chicago Police.

He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition, police said.

No one was in custody as Area North detectives investigated.
