A man was killed and another wounded in a shooting Wednesday morning in the East Garfield Park neighborhood.

The men, 28 and 36, were outside when gunfire rang out in the 2800 block of West Warren Avenue at 8 a.m., Chicago police said.

Someone drove the men to Mount Sinai Hospital, where the 28-year-old was pronounced dead with gunshot wounds to his body, police said.

He was identified as Brandon Smiley of Lawndale, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

The other man was listed in serious condition with gunshot wounds to his arm and thigh, police said.

No arrest had been made, police said.

At the same time, however, 12 murders have been logged in the district, a 33% increase over the same period last year.
