Two people were shot, one fatally, Saturday in Grand Crossing on the South Side.

About 6:45 p.m., a man and woman, both 30, were sitting in a vehicle in the 7500 block of South Dobson Avenue, when two men approached them and opened fire, Chicago police said.

Eclenzo Lamond Spencer was struck in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. The woman was struck in the right thigh and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in serious condition.

An autopsy conducted Sunday confirmed Spencer died of his gunshot wounds. His death was ruled a homicide. He lived in Roseland.

Area South detectives are investigating the shooting.
