CHICAGO (WLS) — Chicago police are investigating a pellet gun shooting on the city’s West Side.

A 29-year-old man was shot in the face with a pellet gun about 7:30 p.m. Monday in the 3300-block of West Ogden Avenue in the city’s North Lawndale neighborhood, Chicago police said.

The incident took place across the street from CPD’s 10th District, where migrants have been taking shelter.

Police said an unknown male suspect approached him and shot him in the face area.

Chicago fire crews took the injured man to Mt. Sinai hospital, where he is listed in fair condition.

No one is in custody, and Area Four detectives are investigating.

Chicago police initially said they were looking into the incident as a hate crime, but later said, after further investigation, it does not appear to be a hate crime.
