A man was shot Sunday morning in the South Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

The 28-year-old man was walking about 4:30 a.m. in the 5400 block of West Adams when he heard gunfire and realized he’d been shot in the leg, according to Chicago Police.

He was taken to Loretto Hospital, where his condition stabilized, police said.
