A 19-year-old man was wounded in a shooting Saturday afternoon in the South Deering area on the Far South Side.

The man was outside in the 10600 block of South Bensley Avenue at 4:20 p.m. when a dark-colored car approached and someone inside fired shots, Chicago police said.

He was struck twice in the chest and once in each upper leg, police said. The man was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in serious condition.

Area South detectives are investigating, police said. No one is in custody.
