The shooting happened at about 10:17 a.m. on the 5700 block of West Bloomingdale Avenue, said Chicago Police News Affairs Sgt. Antoinette Ursitti.

The man sustained a gunshot wound to the head and was taken to John H. Stroger, Jr., Hospital of Cook County in critical condition, Ursitti said. 

Officials said some one stepped out of a car at that location and shot the man.
