Chicago — A 35-year-old man is in critical condition after police found him shot in Albany Park overnight.

Chicago police officers found the man down on the ground when they responded to a call of a person shot in the 3400 block of West Sunnyside around 1:10 a.m., according to a CPD media statement. He had a gunshot wound to his leg, and officers tried to slow his blood loss by applying a tourniquet. Police said he is in critical condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

One witness said shots were fired from a white vehicle, but another witness told police that the gunman, wearing a red jacket, ran from the scene, according to police radio transmissions.
