A man was shot in the chest Monday evening in a South Loop parking lot.

Two men were sitting in a vehicle in a parking lot in the 1200 block of South Canal Street about 7:10 p.m. when someone fired shots at their vehicle, Chicago police said.

One 28-year-old in the driver’s seat was struck in the chest and taken to Stroger Hospital, police said. He was listed in critical condition.

The male shooter and two others fled southbound on Canal Street on foot, police said.
