One man was killed and two others were injured in a shooting in the North Austin neighborhood late Friday.

About 11:20 p.m., the three were standing on the sidewalk in the 1600 block of North Mayfield when someone in a passing vehicle shot them, police said.

One man, 31, was shot in his right side and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he later died, police said.

The two others, 33 and 28, were each shot in the right leg and taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood and West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park, respectively, police said. Their conditions had both stabilized.
