An 18-year-old man was shot by someone who tried to rob him Thursday night in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side.

The man was walking in the 400 block of East 37th Street shortly before 9 p.m. when another person walked up with a gun, demanded his things and then shot him in the leg, according to Chicago Police.

He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said.

The robber took off, but it wasn’t clear if he stole anything.
