A 28-year-old man is in good condition at Stroger Hospital after being shot inside Lincoln Park this morning. No one is in custody and the man is not co-operating with investigators.

The victim, a known gang member who lives in West Town, was dropped off at Stroger about 30 minutes later.

Shell casings and blood were found at 2551 North Stockton, police said. Four parked vehicles were also shot.
