The victim was walking in the 1600 block of West Howard when a gunman rolled up in a dark vehicle around 8:31 p.m., Chicago police said. The offender fired shots from the car, striking the man in his left calf.

Police said the victim transported arrived at St. Francis Hospital in a car shortly after the shooting. He was expected to be treated and released, an officer said.
