GARY — A 20-year-old Chicago man sought help in a Glen Park nightclub last weekend after he was shot in the leg, police said.

A witness told police the man and two other people walked into the Paradise Lounge, 5004 Broadway, about 11:45 p.m. Saturday. 

Police arrived and found the man inside the club, Lt. Dawn Westerfield said.

The man told officers he was walking outside the club when he heard a gunshot, realized he'd been shot and entered the club to call 911.

He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Sgt. William Fazekas at 219-881-1210. To remain anonymous, call 866-CRIME-GP.
