A boy was killed in a shooting Sunday afternoon in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side.

About 4:15 p.m., 17-year-old Kenny Ivory was riding his bike when he got into an argument when a group of males who were also on bikes, Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. One of the males fired shots, striking the boy in the 7600 block of South Union.

Ivory was shot in the abdomen and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he died, authorities said. He lived a block away from where he was shot.

Area South detectives were investigating the homicide.
