A man was critically wounded Wednesday evening in a South Shore shooting.

The 25-year-old was standing outside a restaurant at 5:37 p.m. in the 2400 block of East 72nd Street when someone walked up and fired multiple gunshots at him, according to Chicago Police. The male shooter was wearing a black shirt, black hat and black ski mask and drove away in a burgundy Chevrolet Malibu.

The man was shot in the upper left leg and knee, police said. Someone drove him to Jackson Park Hospital in critical condition, but he was not at the hospital when officers arrived.
