A man was wounded in a shooting Friday morning in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

The 20-year-old was driving about 10:45 a.m. in the 1600 block of North Monitor when a 2018 Hyundai Elantra pulled in front of him and someone in the Elantra fired at him from a rear window, Chicago police said.

He suffered a graze wound to the right, back side of his head and sought treatment at West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park, police said.

Area North detectives were investigating.
