A 19-year-old man was killed, and another person injured, Saturday afternoon in a shootout in the West Side Austin neighborhood.

About 5 p.m., a pair of men met with another man outside in the 200 block of North Pine Avenue, Chicago Police said. One man of the pair pulled out a handgun and shot at the other man, 19-year-old Cedrick Williams of the Austin neighborhood, according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Williams was shot in his body and later died at Stroger Hospital, authorities said.

The 18-year-old was struck in his buttocks and back, and was also taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was upgraded to good condition from critical, police said.
