The outbound Stevenson Expressway was briefly shut down by police Wednesday afternoon following a shooting in a Brighton Park business.

Two people were arrested in connection with the shooting, which happened shortly after noon in a business in the 3400 block of South California Avenue, according to Chicago police.

A 33-year-old man was shot in his lower leg and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said. He was listed in fair condition, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said.

The Stevenson was briefly shut down at Pulaski Road while Illinois State Police assisted Chicago police in a “shots fired call,” according to a state trooper in the Chicago district office.

Chicago police did not immediately say why officers closed the outbound Stevenson.
