Police initially said the man, 28, was sitting on the bike path around 7:15 p.m. near the 800-block of North Lake Shore Drive when he heard gunfire and realized he was shot.
Police said Tuesday morning that the investigation showed he had shot himself. Struck in his buttocks, paramedics took him to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition, police said.
A police car and yellow crime scene tape blocked off a portion of the trail as officers investigated the shooting. A handful of joggers and bicyclists stopped to talk with investigators.
Police said no charges have been filed as of Tuesday morning.
