A man was shot in the groin multiple times early Tuesday while he stood in a parking lot outside a Riverdale neighborhood strip club on the South Side.

The man was fired upon by an unidentified offender about 2:05 a.m. and “sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the groin area” as he stood outside The Factory strip club in the 12000 of South Doty, according to police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer.

The venue is billed as “Chicago’s hottest party” on the club’s website.

The man, who is in his 20s, was taken in critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oaklawn, police said.

No one else was injured, and police do not have anyone in custody.
