An 18-year-old man was wounded in a West Side shooting Monday night.

Someone shot him about 10:50 p.m. in the 100 block of North Mason Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood.

Two men approached and one tried to open the 18-year-old's door while he sat in a parked car, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said. 

The 18-year-old drove away and one of the two men opened fire, hitting him in the upper arm. The teen drove himself to Loretto Hospital, where he's in good condition.
