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.
