CHICAGO (STMW) — A man was shot while he was shoveling snow in the South Side Avalon Park neighborhood Sunday morning.

The man, thought to be in his 20s, was shoveling outside his girlfriend’s house in the 8500 block of South Constance Avenue about 10 a.m. when two unidentified men approached and got into an argument with the man, according to Chicago Police.

The two men asked him if he was a member of a particular gang faction before one of the men pulled out a handgun and shot the man in his upper left arm, police said. The men then fled the scene on foot.

The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was listed in good condition, police said.

The man who was shot has a criminal history but no documented gang affiliations, police said.

No one is in custody as Area South detectives investigate.
