A man died Sunday morning, more than 16 hours after he and another man were wounded in a Logan Square neighborhood shooting on the Northwest Side.

Jose Carlos Romero Hernadez, 21, and a 20-year-old man were walking at 6:26 p.m. in the 2700 block of North Monticello when a dark-colored SUV pulled up and someone inside opened fire, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. The SUV then sped away.

Hernadez was shot in the head, while the younger man suffered a gunshot wound to the left thigh. They were both taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where Hernadez was pronounced dead at 11:12 a.m. Sunday, authorities said. He lived in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side.

The younger man’s condition was stabilized, police said.

Area North detectives were conducting a homicide investigation.
