EAST CHICAGO — A Lake Station man was wounded late Wednesday when more than 10 gunshots were fired at him as he exited his vehicle in the city's Harbor section, police said.

The 23-year-old man was able to escape in a vehicle and was driven to a local hospital for treatment, Lt. Marguerite Wilder said.

East Chicago police responded about 8:15 p.m. to the 4000 block of Pulaski Street after the city's ShotSpotter technology alerted them to 11 gunshots. The area is across the street from the East Chicago Public Safety Facility.

The victim fled the area before police arrived. He later told police he got out of his car and heard the gunshots, which struck his body and his vehicle, Wilder said.

The man did not provide a description of any possible suspects in the shooting, she said.
