The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in serious-to-critical condition, Langford said.
A salesman at the Plaza True Value Hardware Store said the shooting happened at about 2 p.m. directly outside of the store. There were about four people attending to about three or four customers inside the store when the shooting happened, according to the salesman who would not give his name.
He said employees called police who arrived along with paramedics who took the man to the hospital.

He said the victim was standing outside of the store with a group of about 15 others when the shooting happened.
"I looked out and I saw a bunch of kids around somebody and I just thought it was some kids fist-fighting," said the man. "Then I saw the blood."
He said the neighborhood "is pretty bad" but they have not experienced any problems near the store.
