SHARE Man killed, 2 others wounded in Englewood shooting

Three men were wounded–one one of them fatally–in an Englewood shooting on the South Side Friday night.

The three–ages 25, 27 and 63–were outside about 10:15 p.m. in the 5700 block of South Aberdeen when two people walked out of a gangway and opened fire, police News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.

The 27-year-old, identified Saturday as Malachi Baldwin, was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene at 10:41 p.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Baldwin lived in the 5600 block of South Elizabeth, authorities said.

The 25-year-old was shot in the abdomen and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Gaines said. The 63-year-old man was taken to St. Bernard Hospital with a gunshot wound to the hand. Their conditions were stabilized.

A police source said the man killed had documented gang ties.
