Man Critically Wounded in Shooting in Calumet Park

A 33-year-old man was critically wounded in a shooting in south suburban Calumet Park Wednesday night.

The shooting took place around 11:45 p.m. in the 11900 block of South Marshfield Avenue, authorities said.

The victim, who family members identified as Brandon Brown, was sitting in an SUV parked in front of a liquor store when someone opened fire on the vehicle.

Brown's mother and siblings said he was shot in the head and abdomen. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical condition, officials said.

Brown lives in Chicago's nearby Morgan Park neighborhood, his family said, and is the father of a 9-year-old girl with a baby boy due in November.

They said they were overwhelmed trying to figure out who shot him and why - asking anyone with information to contact police.

Calumet Park police and Chicago police remained on the scene as the investigation continued. Further details were not immediately available.
