SHARE Police: Man killed in Austin drive-by shooting

A man was shot and killed in the West Side Austin neighborhood Friday morning, police said.

The man, 56, was walking in the 1000 block of North Leamington about 11 a.m. when someone in a black vehicle drove by and fired shots, police said.

The man was shot in the chest and arm and taken to Stroger Hospital, where he later died, police said.

He was not the intended target, and the shooting appears to be drug-related, a police source said.
