A man was shot to death and another was wounded early Friday in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side.

About 1:45 a.m., 23-year-old Jaquan S. Baines and a 31-year-old man were sitting in a parked vehicle in the 11700 block of South Throop Street when someone in a silver-colored car fired shots, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Baines was struck in the head and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died at 3:26 p.m., police said. He lived in the South Side Brainerd neighborhood.

A 31-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to his back and was taken to the same hospital, where his condition stabilized, according to police.

Area South detectives were conducting a homicide investigation.
