A man was killed and a woman was wounded early Monday in the Altgeld Gardens neighborhood on the Far South Side.

Just past midnight, the two people were standing in front of a home in the 13000 block of South Drexel Avenue when someone wearing a ski mask approached them and opened fire, according to Chicago police.

Ron Johnson, 50, was shot in his head and was pronounced dead at the scene, police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. Johnson lived in the same block where he was shot.

The 55-year-old woman suffered a gunshot wound to her leg and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where her condition had stabilized, police said.
