A man was fatally shot, and another wounded, at a house party early Friday in the South Side Englewood neighborhood.

About 1 a.m., Ronald Crump, 32, and another man were standing outside in the 6800 block of South Morgan when a vehicle drove by and someone inside started shooting, Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

The Crump was shot twice in his arm and twice in his torso, according to authorities. He was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. He lived in the Grand Crossing neighborhood.

The other victim was a 28-year-old man who was shot six times, police said. He was hit five times in the arm and grazed once in the head. He was taken to the same hospital, where he was in critical condition.

Officers were called several times earlier in the night for complaints of a large crowd at the house party, according to police sources.

Area South detectives were investigating the shooting.
