Witnesses say a man and two kids he was walking with on 61st Street near King Drive were shot by a gunman Tuesday evening. 

The man was shot several times, police said. The children were four and five years old. One of them was his daughter. 

The man, who was in serious-to-critical condition, was taken to Stroger Hospital. The juveniles, who were both shot in the leg, were transported in good condition to University of Chicago Comer Children's Hospital, police said. 

Crime scene investigators have closed part of the street and remain in the area.
