Man shot in Chatham

A man was shot early Sunday in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.

The 20-year-old man walked into Jackson Park Hospital and Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the leg about 4:15 a.m., police News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.

He told police he was walking in the 7900 block of South Maryland Avenue when he got into an argument with a group of males. One of the males pulled out a handgun and fired shots, striking him in the leg, Gaines said.

The victim is listed in “stable” condition early Sunday.
