Two men were killed and another was critically wounded in a shooting Sunday morning in the South Side Englewood neighborhood, police said.

The men were sitting in a parked vehicle about 5:35 a.m. in the 5500 block of South Wells when someone fired shots at them, according to Chicago Police.

Two of the men suffered multiple gunshot wounds and were taken to University of Chicago Medical Center where they both died, police said.

Parish McKenzie, 21, was pronounced dead at 6:03 a.m. and Tremel L. Thomas, 22, was pronounced dead at 7:55 a.m., according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Autopsies Monday found that McKenzie, of Massachusetts, died from a gunshot wound to the chest and Thomas, of the Englewood neighborhood, died of multiple gunshot wounds. Both deaths were ruled homicides, according to the medical examiner’s office.

A 28-year-old man also suffered multiple gunshot wounds, police said. He showed up at St. Bernard Hospital before being transferred to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, police said.

Area South detectives were conducting a homicide investigation.
