The 45-year-old man was shot about 4:15 p.m. near East 51st Street and South Indiana Avenue, said police News Affairs Officer Anne Dwyer, citing preliminary information.

He was taken in serious condition to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County with gunshot wounds to the kneecap and jaw or neck area, police said.
