Far South Side shooting leaves 33-year-old man injured

Chicago Crime

CHICAGO A 33-year-old man was injured in a shooting in the city’s West Pullman neighborhood late Saturday afternoon, according to police.

Police said the man was standing in a front yard in the 11800 block of South Prairie Avenue when he heard shots and felt pain.

The victim was transported to Christ Hospital and was listed in good condition with a gunshot wound to the left calf.

There is currently no one in custody and the shooting is under investigation.

The shooting was among several on Saturday as city leaders continue to work toward a plan to help curb additional violence that often accompanies summer.

City leaders have identified the city’s 15 most violent areas, attributing 50 percent of the city’s total violence to those regions.

Officials grouped the areas into four zones, with two on the South Side and two on the West Side, the latter including North Lawndale, where two shootings occurred on Saturday.

At least seven people have been shot in Chicago since Friday evening.
