A man was killed and another wounded in a Roseland neighborhood shooting Sunday afternoon on the Far South Side.

About 2:15 p.m., 19-year-old Keith Hayes Jr. was standing with a 21-year-old man on a sidewalk in the 11100 block of South Michigan when a gunman walked up, opened fire and then ran away, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

They were taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where Hayes died of a gunshot wound to the hip at 10:27 p.m., authorities said. He lived in the 11300 block of South Stewart.

The older man was shot in the leg and his condition was stabilized. Police initially said both men were in good condition.

No one was in custody for the shooting Monday night as Area South detectives investigate.
