A man was killed and another was wounded in a shooting Sunday morning in the West Side Austin neighborhood, police said.

Jemarion Jackson, 23, and a 37-year-old man were walking at 7:36 a.m. in the 4800 block of West Monroe when they heard gunfire and realized they’d been shot, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Jackson, who lived in the West Side Lawndale neighborhood, suffered a gunshot wound to the chest, while the older man was shot in the back, authorities said. They were both taken to Stroger Hospital, where the younger man died and the older man was in good condition.

Area North detectives were conducting a homicide investigation.
