A man was killed and another man was wounded in a drive-by shooting late Friday in the East Side neighborhood on the Far South Side.

The two men, ages 49 and 54, were getting out of a vehicle at 10:43 p.m. in the 10600 block of South Green Bay Avenue when someone shot at them from a white SUV, according to Chicago Police.

The younger man, identified as Michael Whitford, was shot in the back and died at 11:35 p.m. at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office and police. He lived on the same block as where the shooting happened.

The older man was shot in the face and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said. His condition had stabilized.
