CHICAGO (CBS) – A man is in critical condition after being shot in the abdomen Saturday night in the Northwest Side Portage Park neighborhood.

The 29-year-old man was shot in the abdomen about 9:40 p.m. in the 5900 block of West Berteau Avenue, police said. He was taken in critical condition to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.

The man was sitting in a vehicle when a male walked up to the window and shot him and ran off, police said. The shooting may have been gang-related.

No one was in custody early Sunday and Grand Central Area detectives are investigating.
