Two men are dead following a Sunday afternoon drive-by shooting in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

Andre Chatman, 23, and Carey Hollis, 28, were in a car traveling east in the 5800 block of West North Avenue about 3:45 p.m., when another vehicle pulled alongside and someone inside fired shots, striking both men, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The vehicle briefly continued east before crashing into a pole at Massasoit and North.

Chatham and Hollis, who both lived in the 1000 block of North Mayfield, were pronounced dead at the scene, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Autopsies Monday found that Chatham died of multiple gunshot wounds and Hollis died of a gunshot wound to the back, and both of their deaths were ruled homicides.
