A man who sought help from a resident for an unknown medical issue was later determined to actually have been shot and seriously injured Saturday afternoon in Waukegan.

The Waukegan Fire Department and Waukegan Police Department responded around 1:45 p.m. Saturday to the 1000 block of Judge Avenue in Waukegan.

A resident called 911 to report a man slumped over after he had asked them to take him to the hospital, according to fire department radio traffic.

Paramedics found the man was incoherent and had low blood sugar.

They transported him to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville where he was further evaluated by medical staff, a police report said.

Medical staff found the man had been shot in his back and suffered serious injuries internally, the report said.

It is unknown whether his injuries are life-threatening or not.
