Two teenage boys were shot Monday afternoon in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side, leaving one dead.

About 2 p.m., the boys were on a sidewalk in the 1300 block of South Homan when a black vehicle pulled up and someone inside opened fire, hitting a 17-year-old in the chest and hand, and a 16-year-old in the buttocks, according to Chicago Police.

They were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where the older boy, identified as 17-year-old Ketrell Hill, died at 2:31 p.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in the 3600 block of West Grenshaw.

The condition of the 16-year-old was stabilized, police said.

The shooter’s vehicle took off north on Homan. No one was in custody.
