A man wounded in a drive-by shooting was found inside a car on Lake Shore Drive near Navy Pier, police said.

Officers arrived at the scene of a crash in the 500-block of North Lake Shore Drive around 10:30 pm. They found the man inside a dark blue sedan with a gunshot wound to the lower back. He was rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where his condition stabilized.
