A man was killed and another man, possibly his father, was wounded in a shooting Thursday afternoon in the South Side Chatham neighborhood, according to Chicago Police.

Fred Anderson, 22, got into an argument with two people about noon in the 8100 block of South Ellis, police said.

One of the people pulled out a gun and fired shots, striking Anderson and 41-year-old man, police said.

Anderson was shot in the abdomen and was pronounced dead, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Friday found he died of multiple gunshot wounds, and his death was ruled a homicide.

The older man was shot in the shoulder, police said. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, but his condition was not immediately known.

Unconfirmed scanner reports said the victims were a father and son.
