A man was shot to death—and another man wounded—Wednesday evening near Garfield Park on the West Side, according to police.

The shooting happened about 7:30 p.m. in the 3900 block of West Gladys Avenue, Chicago police said.

Jamal K. Perry, 26, was shot in his abdomen and chest and was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, where he died less than an hour later, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He lived in the Fernwood neighborhood.

Another man, age 34, was taken to the same hospital with a gunshot wound to his hand, police said. His condition had stabilized.

Detectives were conducting a homicide investigation. No one was in custody.
