It happened at about 3 p.m. in the 3400 block of North Weil Street.

The man told investigators he was raking leaves in his yard when he heard a popping sound. That’s when he realized he had been shot.

Three males were seen driving away from the scene in a van with no license plates.

The victim’s condition was not released.
