Two Bellwood men were killed in a shooting Monday night in the west suburb.

Officers responded about 10:30 p.m. to a call of a person shot in the 300 block of 28th Avenue and found 33-year-old Termaine Hughes and 25-year-old Roger Griffin suffering from gunshot wounds, according to Bellwood police.

They were taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where they were pronounced dead, the medical examiner’s office said.

Both of their deaths were ruled homicides, the medical examiner’s office said Tuesday. Griffin lived in the block where they were shot and Hughes lived about a mile away.

Bellwood police were not immediately available to provide additional information Tuesday evening.

The killings remain under investigation.
