A 39-year-old man was killed Friday afternoon in a Gresham neighborhood shooting on the South Side.

Cory Hicks was standing on the sidewalk about 4:20 p.m. in the 8300 block of South Marshfield when a van pulled alongside him and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

He was struck multiple times and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said. Hicks lived on the same block of the shooting.

The medical examiner’s office scheduled an autopsy.

Area South detectives were investigating.
