A man was wounded in a shooting Sunday morning in the South Side Chatham neighborhood.

The 27-year-old was outside about 11:45 a.m. in the 8200 block of South Cottage Grove when he was approached by someone he didn’t know, according to Chicago Police. The person showed a gun, and the two briefly struggled for control of it before the man was shot in the back of his foot.

He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said.

Area South detectives were investigating.
