An 18-year-old man died after he was found shot early Friday at the Woodland Village Apartments in Waukegan, the Waukegan police said.

Robert J. Gordon of Waukegan was found in the courtyard after police responded to a call to the 2400 block of Dugdale Road. Gordon was transported to Vista East Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A coroner's report said the preliminary cause of death was a gunshot wound. A toxicology report is pending, said Deputy Chief Keith Zupec.
