CALUMET CITY — A 23-year-old Burnham man was wounded in a shooting about 6:50 p.m. Monday near Torrence and Harding avenues, police said.

Police shut down several blocks of Torrence Avenue, just north of Sibley Boulevard, after responding to a report of a gunshot victim, according to a news release.

Officers located the man, who had a gunshot wound and was taken to a local trauma center for treatment.

A car with its front doors ajar sat facing east on Harding Avenue, within a cordoned-off crime scene area. Police wrapped crime scene tape around several blocks of Torrence and a grassy area west of the road.

A day care center, which appeared to be closed for the night, stood just outside the crime scene to the east along Torrence.
