A man was killed and two others were wounded in a shooting Saturday afternoon in the South Side Park Manor neighborhood.

The three were arguing with a group of people about 12:15 p.m. in the 7100 block of South Rhodes when someone in the group pulled out a gun and fired at them before running away, according to Chicago Police.

Mahadi Hering, 19, was shot in the head and driven by friends to Jackson Park Hospital. He was later transferred to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:36 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office and police. He lived in the 7200 block of South Evans.
