A man injured after shots were fired early Thursday in the West Side Austin neighborhood was not struck by gunfire.

The 24-year was leaving a liquor store when he heard shots about 1:20 a.m. in the 300 block of North Cicero, according to Chicago Police.

Police initially reported that the man had suffered a graze wound to the face, but investigators later determined he had suffered the injury to his face when he fell after the shots were fired.

He was taken to Rush University Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
