A pair of shootings that left one man dead Wednesday night in the north suburban Waukegan were being investigated as related attacks.

The first victim, a 28-year-old man from Zion, was found at about 10 p.m. in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 1400 block of Grand Avenue, according to a statement from Waukegan police. The officers were responding to reports of shots fired in the area.

The man, identified as Julian King, was pronounced dead at a hospital, according to police and the Lake County Coroner’s Office. An autopsy Thursday found he died from gunshot wounds.

Police said about an hour later they were informed about a second shooting victim, a 38-year-old Waukegan man, who showed up at a different hospital. He remained in serious condition Thursday.

Both shootings were believed to be related, police said, but investigators were unsure about the extent of their connection.

The gun violence was isolated and posed no direct threat to other residents, police said.
