Two men were shot — one fatally — in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side early Saturday.

The two, ages 21 and 24, were driving home in an alley in the 500 block of West 127th Street about 3:35 a.m. when a male with dreadlocks shot them from inside a blue truck, according to Chicago Police.

The younger man, Dylan N. Dent, was shot in the shoulder and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 4:30 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office and police. He lived in the same block as the shooting. 

The other man was shot in the leg and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said. His condition stabilized.
