Police say a 21-year-old Evanston man was shot early this morning in the 700 block of Dewey Avenue.

Police Cmdr. Tom Guenther says that at 12:51 a.m. officers found the victim sitting in a car suffering from a gunshot wound to his right thigh.

He was taken to a local hospital. No information on his condition was immediately available.

Guenther says detectives are investigating the incident, but it was unclear whether police yet have any suspects in the case.
