The two were shot about 6:45 p.m. in the 7600 block of South Emerald, police said.

Marquel Sharp, 18, suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 1:36 p.m. Tuesday, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in the 3600 block of West 15th Avenue in Gary, Indiana.

A 16-year-old boy was shot in the hip and also taken to Christ Medical Center, police said. His condition had stabilized.

Investigators believe the shooting to be domestic-related, but additional details were not available late Monday.
