A man was killed and two other people were wounded in a shooting early Thursday in Gresham on the South Side.

Just before 2 a.m., the three victims were inside a vehicle in the 8000 block of South Marshfield when someone walked up to them at a stop sign and opened fire, according to Chicago Police. The shooter then ran away.

Winston Delaney, 50, was shot in the back and forearm and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died at 2:42 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Delaney lived in the 8100 block of South Justine. Police initially said he was 45.

A 33-year-old man was shot in the right forearm, and a 59-year-old woman in the hip and back. They were both taken to Stroger Hospital, where their conditions were stabilized, police said.

The crime scene was taped off on West 78th from South Marshfield to South Paulina. A dark-colored Chrysler minivan could be seen on the north side of West 78th with the driver’s and passenger’s doors open as officers with flashlights and cameras searched inside.
