Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said the shooting occurred in the 7400 block of Ridge Avenue. Chicago police officers responded to the call.

Dugan said the man was an Evanston resident but the Evanston Police Department is unsure whether he resided in the city at the time of the shooting. The man’s identity has yet to be released, Dugan said.
