CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A man was wounded in a shooting Monday while traveling on the Chicago Skyway on the South Side.

The man was riding in the passenger side of a vehicle around 11:30 a.m. in the outbound lanes near 78th Street, when a gray van pulled alongside and someone opened fire, Chicago police said.

The 33-year-old, black man was shot in the left leg and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he is currently in stable condition.

Chicago Police Department's Office of News Affairs said it's unlikely the incident was random, and is possibly gang-related.

Area Central detectives are still investigating.
