A man was shot in the arm Sunday while shoveling snow on Chicago's South Side, police said.

The man was shoveling snow in his driveway around 10 a.m. in the 8500 block of South Constance Avenue in the Stony Island Park neighborhood when he was approached by two men, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala.

The man, who is in his 20s, exchanged words with the offenders when one of them pulled out a handgun and shot him in the upper left arm, Zala said.

The victim was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in good condition.

The attackers fled the scene and no one was in custody as of Sunday afternoon. An investigation is ongoing, Zala said.

At least 14 other people have been shot, four of them fatally, in Chicago since Friday.
