Chicago's Mount Sinai Hospital goes on lockdown after man shot outside

A 31-year-old man was shot outside of Chicago-based Mount Sinai Hospital's emergency department early Sunday morning.

Police say the man was walking into the hospital around 3:36 a.m. when he was shot in the groin area, according to NBC Chicago. The man was taken into the hospital to be treated and was in serious condition. 

The hospital went on lockdown immediately after the shooting, Dianne Hunter, a spokeswoman for Mount Sinai, told the Chicago Tribune. The hospital also told all ambulance companies to bypass Mount Sinai. Ms. Hunter said the bypass and lockdown were both lifted by 6:28 a.m. Sunday.

No one has been arrested in connection with the shooting, according to NBC Chicago. 

The man was one of 30 people shot in Chicago during an 18-hour period from Saturday to Sunday, according to the Chicago Tribune.
