Chicago police are investigating an early morning shooting of  a man in Rogers Park.

A 24-year-old man was grazed by a bullet that was apparently fired from a moving vehicle at about 12:45 a.m. before being taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston.

The Chicago Tribune reported this shooting here, saying:

In what appeared to be a drive-by shooting, a 24-year-old man was shot in the 7400 block of North Seeley Avenue in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the Far North Side, Greer said, citing preliminary information.

The man sustained a graze wound to the thigh and a gunshot wound to the groin, Greer said. He was taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where his condition was stabilized. No suspects were in custody as Area North detectives investigated the shooting.
