A 16-year-old boy was killed and two men were wounded in a shooting Thursday evening in the Humboldt Park neighborhood on the West Side.

At 7:12 p.m., the three were standing on a sidewalk in the 800 block of North St. Louis Avenue when a light-colored vehicle pulled up and a gunman got out and opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

The teenager, Lucas Spicer, was shot in the chest and taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:51 p.m., authorities said. Spicer lived in the 1600 block of South Central Park Avenue, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

An 18-year-old man shot in the chest and neck was also taken to Stroger, where he was listed in critical condition, police said. A 19-year-old man suffered a graze wound and was listed in good condition at Norwegian American Hospital.
