The Kane County Sheriff's Office isn't ruling out gang activity in a shooting that occurred in unincorporated Aurora Township near Montgomery Thursday night.

According to Lt. Pat Gengler, the sheriff's office was called to the 1300 block of Watson Street just off Montgomery Road shortly before 6 p.m. for a report of an adult male that had been shot.

The man was transported to Rush-Copley Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries, Gengler said. Online scanner reports stated the man was shot in the abdomen and leg.

There is no suspect information at this time, and no arrests have been made, Gengler said.

Thursday night's shooting is just blocks away from where a man was shot and killed along Montgomery Road on Dec. 18. That victim was later identified as Jesus Garcia Jr. 28, of the 4700 block of North Kildare Ave., Chicago.
