A man was shot in the back while taking out his trash early Tuesday in the Logan Square neighborhood on the North Side.

The 46-year-old man was taking out his trash in an alley when he heard shots and felt pain about 2:35 a.m. in the 1700 block of North Talman, according to Chicago Police.

The man told police he did not see where the shooters came from.

He is in serious condition at Illinois Masonic Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the back, police said.

No one was in custody as Area North detectives investigate.
