A man was shot in his back Monday evening in the South Side Back of the Yards neighborhood.

He was sitting in his vehicle about 5:20 p.m. in the 4700 block of South Hermitage Avenue when a light-colored car pulled up and someone exited, Chicago police said.

The male fired shots and got back in the car, police said. The driver left and struck a parked vehicle.

The man, 27, took himself to Mercy Hospital in good condition, police said. No arrests have been made.
