A man who was shot Thursday morning in the West Side Austin neighborhood later walked into a hospital.

The 45-year-old showed up at West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park with a gunshot wound to the arm at 8:39 a.m., according to Chicago Police.

He said he was shot a few minutes before in the 1100 block of North Leclaire, police said.

The victim’s condition was stabilized at the hospital.

Before this most recent incident, the city went more than nine hours without a shooting after a spate of violence left 16 people wounded across the city Wednesday.
