A 26-year-old man was killed and a woman was seriously injured in a shooting Saturday afternoon in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood on the South Side.

Eric D. Henry Jr. and a 24-year-old woman were sitting in a vehicle in the 900 block of West 85th Street at 3:47 p.m. when someone walked up to the vehicle and fired shots, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Henry, who lived in the 300 block of Luella Avenue in Calumet City, was shot in the head and was pronounced dead at the scene less than an hour later, authorities said.

The woman suffered gunshot wounds to the jaw and leg and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in serious condition, police said.
