A 25-year-old Naperville man was shot in the upper abdomen Wednesday, apparently while he was talking to someone who was inside an older-model car on Aurora's East side, authorities said.

Police said the victim was transported to an Aurora-area hospital where his condition was stabilized and he is expected to survive.

The preliminary investigation indicates the victim was talking to someone inside a battered green Oldsmobile about 5 p.m. near the intersection of Hill and North when one shot was fired from inside the car. The vehicle was last scene heading south from the scene.

The victim walked a short distance before collapsing, police said.

Authorities said they have not yet developed a firm motive for the shooting, but believe it may have been gang-related.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Aurora police investigators at (630) 256-5500 or Aurora Area Crime Stoppers at (630) 892-1000. Callers to Crime Stoppers are anonymous and qualify for a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to any arrests.
