A man was killed and another wounded in a drive-by shooting late Friday in the University Village neighborhood on the Near West Side.

The men, both 21, were standing on a sidewalk in the 1200 block of West Grenshaw about 11:45 p.m. when someone in a dark-colored van fired shots, according to Chicago Police.

Friends drove the men to Stroger Hospital, police said.

One of the men, identified as Mark Vargas of the 900 block of West 19th Street, was shot in the chest and abdomen, and was pronounced dead at Stroger at 12:13 a.m. Saturday, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The other man was shot in the arm and his condition was stabilized, police said.
