CHICAGO (STMW) — A man was shot at the Argyle CTA Red Line station in the Uptown neighborhood early Wednesday.

The man, 20, was at the station in the 1100 block of West Argyle Street shortly after 2 a.m. when a gunman approached, yelled gang slogans and fired, hitting him in the shoulder, police said, citing preliminary information.

The man was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in “stable” condition, police said.

Police also confirmed the shooting was gang related and that the victim has “gang affiliations.” Police said investigators are looking at surveillance footage to determine whether the shooting happened on the platform or train car.

CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski said there was an eight-minute delay following the shooting, but that train operations have returned to normal.

Area North detectives are investigating.
