A 24-year-old man was shot in the hip Tuesday evening in the Humboldt Park neighborhood on the West Side.
He was with friends when they encountered a group of rival gang members about 9 p.m. in the 1500 block of North St. Louis, Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.
They started arguing, and someone took out a handgun and started shooting, Alfaro said.
The injured man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, Alfaro said.
No one was in custody. Area North detectives were investigating.
