The men, ages 34 and 28, were parked in a vehicle in the 2900 block of West Lexington about 4:10 a.m. when a black vehicle pulled up and someone inside fired at them, police said.

The 28-year-old was shot in the neck, chest and shoulder, and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition was stabilized.

A police source said the man killed was a documented gang member.
