Officers were alerted about 3:30 a.m. to the 7900 block of Ingleside Avenue, said Police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak.
Preliminary reports said the man was outside talking with friends when the group heard shots and the victim realized he had been shot.
Soon after, the victim and his friends saw a green or blue Chevy fleeing the scene, Kubiak said.
The man was taken to Jackson Park Hospital and Medical Center where he was stablized, Kubiak said.
No one was in custody. Police are investigating.
