A 30-year-old man was shot and killed in a drive-by attack Saturday evening in Morgan Park on the Far South Side.

At 5:52 p.m., Maurice Gordon of Davenport, Iowa, was sitting with three other people in a vehicle in the 11400 block of South Church Street when someone fired shots at them from another vehicle, according to spokespeople for the Chicago police and fire departments, as well as the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Gordon was struck in the upper body and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where he died, authorities said. An autopsy conducted Sunday said he died of multiple gunshot wounds and ruled his death a homicide.

Area South detectives are investigating.
