A man was grazed by a bullet Thursday afternoon in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

The 23-year-old was standing in front of his house in the 5500 block of West Parker about 3:15 p.m. when two people rode up on bicycles, and one removed a gun from a backpack and fired, according to Chicago Police. They then rode away.

The man suffered a graze wound to the right wrist and was treated at the scene, police said.

A police source said the shooting was gang-related.
