A south side man told police he was walking home about 3AM when he was jumped by as many as five men as he arrived at his home.
It happened on West Dickson Street, which is just north of Southwest Military.
Police say the men struggled with his attackers, one of whom pulled a handgun and shot him.
The victim was hit once in the leg and is hospitalized.
The five men ran away, and police are investigating the man's claims.
