At least three gunmen opened fire on a group standing outside Wednesday morning, hitting a man who was waiting for a bus, authorities said.
Shortly after 6:30 a.m., a 21-year-old man was outside in the 4700 block of South Wolcott Avenue with two other people when three males approached on foot and started yelling, Chicago police said.
The group who approached opened fire, shooting the 21-year-old in the head. He was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital.
Ald. Raymond Lopez, 15th, tweeted that gangbangers shot a special needs man while he waited on his daily bus ride.
Police said the shooters fled north on Wolcott. No one was in custody and detectives were investigating.
