The men, ages 25 and 22, were sitting in a vehicle in the 3100 block of West Wabansia about 6 p.m. when someone walked up and shot them before running off, police said.

The older man, identified as 25-year-old Luis Gonzalez, was shot in the head and neck, and was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:35 p.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in the 1600 block of North Albany.
