A man was critically wounded in a shooting Thursday afternoon in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.

The man was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the back, police said.

Area South detectives were questioning a person of interest in connection with the shooting, police said.
