August 29, 2013 (CHICAGO)

The shooting happened at 64th and May near the Bass School on the South Side. The man in his twenties was wounded in the leg and buttocks and is in stable condition.

A CPS spokesperson says students at the school were brought inside the building after the shooting nearby, which is standard protocol. The shooting happened near the school but not on school grounds and otherwise students were not impacted.

CPS released a statement: "Bass School students were on school property and not near the incident in any way. However, out of an abundance of caution, school officials took additional preventive steps to ensure students remained safe. As always, we work with police and others to ensure that our students have a safe and secure learning environment every day."
