Initial reports indicated that a juvenile was shot, but upon arrival, police determined that the victim was an adult and that the child was not injured.
Neither 911 callers were able to determine if the suspect or suspects fled on foot or drove away.
Police later said the shooting was not random, and that it happened outside during an altercation at Hallworth Place near Kildare Place.
Investigators called K-9 units to the scene and were also seen with metal detectors.
Police said the victim’s injuries were not life-threatening.
