A 17-year-old boy was killed and a 41-year-old man wounded in a shooting early Sunday in the Riverdale neighborhood on the Far South Side.

About 2:20 a.m., the pair were outside in the 300 block of East 130th Street when they heard gunfire and realized they had been hit, according to Chicago Police.

They were taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where the boy died of a gunshot wound to the head at 7:57 a.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He was identified as Corey Buckner of the 13200 block of South Eberhart.

The man was also shot, though it wasn’t clear on the body where he was hit. His condition stabilized, police said.

A person was arrested after the shooting, but police said Tuesday morning that they had been released without being charged. The investigation is ongoing by Area South detectives.
