A man was killed and another was wounded early Saturday in a Marquette Park neighborhood shooting on the Southwest Side.

Two men, both 25, were standing about 1:40 a.m. in the 7200 block of South Western Avenue when they heard gunfire and realized they’d been shot, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. Scott S. Strahan suffered a gunshot wound to his right hip, while the other man was shot in the left arm and back.

They were taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where Strahan was pronounced dead at 2:53 a.m. and the other man’s condition stabilized, authorities said. Strahan lived less than a mile from where he was killed.

Police investigate a shooting about 1:15 a.m. Saturday, June 9, 2018 in the 7200 block of Western Avenue in Chicago.

Shortly after the shooting, officers taped off a Harold’s Chicken Shack in the block and placed several evidence markers in front of it.

Area Central detectives were conducting a homicide investigation.
