CHICAGO (STMW) — A man was shot while he sat in a car in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood during an apparent robbery Monday night.

The 21-year-old man was sitting in a Nissan Altima with several other males when two gunmen approached the car in the 8200 block of South Marshfield Avenue and robbed the group about 11:50 p.m., police said.

The two gunmen then fired into the car, striking the 21-year-old in the lower abdomen before they fled on foot, said police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro.

The driver of the car took the man to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, police said. The man was then transported to Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn in “stable” condition for further treatment, police said.

No one was in custody early Tuesday as Area South detectives investigated.
