A 19-year-old man was shot Wednesday within a block of St. Sabina Academy in Auburn Gresham on the South Side.
He was walking out of a business about 11:20 a.m. in the 7700 block of South Racine Avenue when he heard gunfire, Chicago police said.
After realizing he was shot, he drove a couple blocks away and flagged down officers, police said.
He was taken with a gunshot wound to the buttocks to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
St. Sabina Academy, which is a block away from the shooting at 7801 S. Throop St., was briefly placed on soft lockdown, according to police radio reports.
Reached by phone, the principal of the school declined to comment.
