A man was wounded from a shooting in which gang signals were thrown up early Saturday in the Southwest Side Brighton Park neighborhood.

At 12:21 a.m., the 22-year-old was driving in the 4400 block of South Archer when a gray Acura SUV pulled up next to him, according to Chicago police. Three males were inside, one of whom shot the 22-year-old in the lower backside.
