A man was shot in his buttocks early Monday in the Belmont Gardens neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

The 24-year-old was walking about 12:05 a.m. on the sidewalk in the 4000 block of West Oakdale when he heard shots and felt pain, according to Chicago Police.

He suffered a gunshot wound to his buttocks and was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where his condition stabilized, police said.
