A man was killed Saturday evening in a Back of the Yards neighborhood shooting on the South Side.

Dario Balderrama, 32, had just parked his car and was crossing the street in the 4800 block of South Racine at 6:24 p.m. when a dark vehicle approached and two people got out and fired shots, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Balderrama, who lived in the same neighborhood as the shooting, was shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

The shooters got back in the vehicle and took off heading north, police said. The shooting was believed to be gang-related.
