DOWNTOWN — A man was shot on Michigan Avenue across the street from Millennium Park Thursday night.

The victim, 21, was shot in his stomach at 8:25 p.m. in the 100 block of South Michigan Avenue near Monroe Street, police said.

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, which has offices in the Sullivan Center at 36 S. Wabash Ave., said the victim ran from the scene but did not make it far.

"The victim fled on foot and collapsed on Wabash in front of the Sullivan building," school security said in an email to the campus community. "The south entrance to Sullivan is temporarily closed while police process the crime scene."

The victim, who is not affiliated with the school, was taken to Northwestern Hospital. Police did not release his condition but said he was "stable."

Police said no one was in custody for the shooting. Officials said the victim was "uncooperative" and had gang ties.
