A person was in critical condition in a shooting Wednesday afternoon at the Sox-35th Red Line stop, according to police.

At approximately 1:22 p.m. a man was on the CTA train traveling northbound from 55th Street when he exited onto the 35th Street platform, police said.

An unknown person, who was on the same train as the man, approached him, produced a gun and fired one shot, striking him in the neck, officials said.

Police said the man was taken to an area hospital in critical condition. No one was in custody as of Wednesday evening and Area 1 detectives are investigating.

On Monday, an 18-year-old man was found shot on a Red Line train at a station in the first block of West 69th Street in Englewood.

Earlier this month, three men were wounded in a shooting near the Garfield Red Line station on the South Side.
