A man was seriously wounded early Friday when his car was repeatedly rammed before he was shot in the West Town neighborhood.

He lost control of his car and crashed into a parked Mercedes, police said. The Hyundai then pulled up next to him and opened fire.

The 19-year-old was shot in the chest, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition.

The Hyundai had two males and one female in it, police said.

Area Central detectives were investigating.
